I loved this podophyllum hexandrum in his woodsy garden so much that I bought it at Cady's Falls.

I have one of these plants but he has a small forest of these huge beasts in the woods. I'll have to look at my tag for the name.

Podophyllum peltatum? Don't you love those huge stands of them? Like a forest of Umbrellas!

Nope, hexandrum, pinky flower coming out the top. I have huge amts of peltatum here but this guy doesn't spread much. At Phil's they were here and there. We'll see what happens here....
