Is It or Is It Not A MayApple?
This is a MayApple (picture obtained from the Internet)
This is a Ginseng Plant (picture obtained from the Internet)
I have tried to relocate the blog about the MayApple, to no avail. I follow several blogs, and once in a while I will check out other blogs listed on those blogs that I do follow.I ran across one post asking if anyone could identify a plant she had ran across and posted on her blog. Several of us thought it was a MayApple by it's growing habits, and it's leaf formation, but it had a red seed pod.
This is a Trillium (picture obtained from the Internet)
I have done a little more research, and found another plant, a Trillium, with what appeared to be a single red seed, larger than the seeds in her picture.But I am a little more certain now,that the picture she posted was that of the ginseng plant. It has a red seed pod. The MayApple does not appear to have that red seedpod.I am hoping that someone will help me to relocate the original post. I'm thinking the postee lives in Indiana.
