May Apple is a Herbaceous Perennial

Botanical Latin Name: Podophyllum peltatum

Common Name: May Apple

Sun Exposure: Low

Mature Height: 30–40 cm tall

Spread: 20–30 cm diameter

Spacing: Under the foliage

Growth Rate: Spring Ephemerals

Flowering Time: Spring

How Long It Flowers: Several Months

Flower Color: Pale Yellow

Soil Requirements: Wet

Pruning: None

Flower Form:


Native to North American deciduous forests, the May Apple grows under the forest canopy, flowers, and withers during late summer. Hardier than some other ephemerals, the May Apple grows to 30–40 cm tall with thick stems that produce two to three palmately lobed foliage leaves of up to 30 cm diameter. Of those, five to nine of the cut lobes reproduce. The 3-5 cm diameter flower blooms pale yellow. As it matures, it turns into a fruit.

May Apple is also Called the Indian Apple, Hog Apple, Mayflower, Umbrella Plant, Wild Lemon, or Wild Mandrake

Seen throughout the Eastern woodlands of Canada and the United States, the May Apple is typically entangled in rhizome systems of many types of wild plants and flowers. The green environment makes the plant fecund for sexual reproduction. Far distance dispersal of the seeds, which appear like circular clones, reproduces annually. The protection of the forest ensures replication. May Apple is such a great addition to any home!
