How about that!
I just noticed their timing.
Mayapples on May first. Isn't that something!

I moved a couple of cowslips previous to selling the camp last fall.
Today, they also have sprung forth. Won't be long now and I, in the far north, shall have wildflowers in bloom.

Whoop whoop!
Mayapple area #2 (just outside the window at camp) made their appearance today. Things are "finally" waking up here in the UP! Yippie ki-yay-YEY!
The other area in which I had planted a few is deeper into the woods, more shaded and still sleeping.

My Mayapples are up....but there aren't as many as last year. Do bunnies like them? I see a few things that might just be gnawed Mayapple stubs. I hope the three or four that survived will be enough to get a good "mini forest" going.

Unsure. I've never had any before these.

Mayapples are toxic through purgative and Cytostasis (preventing cell growth). Because of this, there is heavy research in using this "toxin" as a anti-cancer product.

There is suggestions that animals will eat things, motivated by cravings maybe, to eat toxic plants in limited quantities, as a sort of self medicating.

A lot of plants would look like mayapple stubs, so hard to say.
