The amount of pattern varies with light, temperature, and age. Avoid burying crowns too deeply, as it can cause rot. Grow in cool house for best color and growth. Grows best here by cooling pads. We recommend transplanting to a 4" pot from a plug, not a larger size container.
Podophyllum ‘Spotty Dotty’
This brilliant hybrid of several Asian Mayapples boasts large, vigorous, lobed umbrellalike leaves. New leaves are chartreuse with dramatic chocolate-brown spotting. In summer, the leaves are green with lightly spotted areas. Large garnet red flowers are found under the leaves in clusters of 5 or more. 'Spotty Dotty' was selected for its coloring, frost tolerance, vigor, and rhizomatous habit. All Podophyllum prefer shade and cool, moist, organic soils. Protect from hard frosts in spring. Avoid drought stress.
