Jeffersonia diphylla


Jeffersonia diphylla has unique two-lobed leaves and delicate white flowers with yellow centres in spring.

Jeffersonia diphylla is a delightful, rare, clump-forming, eastern North American native plant with delicate stems holding aloft two-lobed leaves. The flowers are white and cup-shaped. They do not last for long but they are charming when they flower and the clump of foliage provides a neat mound afterwards. Perfect for a woodland setting and shady borders.
