I love those plants :-) Thanks for the info--I'd never bothered to investigate any further than the name.

Careful of poison ivy while you're trampling around out there!


Mayapples are one of my favorites, too!


Beautiful writing, Wesley...and very interesting information. And that last photograph is lovely. Thank you for getting down on your hands and knees for that one! At our old home, we had a huge patch of Mayapples, and I miss them terribly, along with the Jacks-in-the-Pulpit and my flame azaleas.


These are wonderful and our Mayapples are just starting to come out of the ground! Thanks for sharing!
