Info

This is one of the rarest and most highly prized gems that we have had the pleasure of offering. The Chinese mayapple has only one (sometimes two) 15" wide hexagonally lobed glossy green tropical looking leaves perched atop a solitary 2' fleshy green stem. As the plant ages, the pink mayapple-like flowers appear just under the leaf, followed by bright red jujube-like fruit...guaranteed to freak out your neighbors!
