The Weird & the Wonderful

Podophyllum delavayi

Two of my favorite plants are emerging from the depths this week. Above is my favorite of all the Mayapples, Podophyllum delavayi. The first time I saw one of these I wondered if it was even real! In a couple of weeks it's wonderful leaves will have unfolded. Below is Syneilesis palmata 'Kikko'. Syneilesis palmata in it's own right is a really great plant but the variegated cultivar 'Kikko' is something else!
