Notes:

I recently moved into a new home and can’t figure out what this plant might be. I have a dozen or so of these plants that sprouted this spring. I thought these might be trees when they first started growing, but the stems are not woody. With the flower, it almost reminds me of some sort of vegetable plant.

    It’s Mayapple, a native wildflower; podophyllum. The fruit actually is supposed to be edible and make great jelly, but i’ve never tried it…too chicken to be in the woods that late…not without snake antivinum anyway..
