Common name: Spotty Dotty
Special Notes: This brilliant hybrid of several Asian Mayapples has large vigorous lobed umbrella shaped leaves.  Dramatic leaves are chartreuse with bizarre chocolate-brown spotting throughout the spring.  Huge garnet flowers in clusters of 5 or more occur under the leaves.  This cultivar was selected for its coloring, improved frost tolerance, vigor and habit.  Deciduous and winter dormant.  Does well in pots.
