Mayapple

Podophyllum Peltatum

Mayapple can be quite aggressive, but have attractive, short, green foliage to protect the large white flower which blooms in April and May.  It may go dormant in the summer. Although it will produce an edible greenish fruit that will turn golden, the Mayapple leaves and root can be toxic.
