Podophyllum peltatum: foliage

[Photo: Podophyllum peltatum emerging.]Podophyllum peltatum, known in English as "mayapple", "hogapple", "umbrella plant", "wild lemon", "wild mandrake", "American mandrake" or "devil's apple", and in French as pomme de mai, is a perennial native to eastern North America. To me, the big umbrella-shaped leaves have an intriguing tropical look.

I photographed these plants in Wilket Creek Park.
