American Cousin

This is our native diphylleia, found in the S.E. part of the U.S., in damp and cool spots in the hills and mountains; called umbrella-leaf or Diphylleia cymosa. It will get quite large, and form impressive clumps if given enough water. The flowers are small for the plant; just a small cluster of white flowers on top of each leaf, but it then forms interesting blue berries on red stems.
