Diphylleia Grayi, or Umbrella leaf is a very rare and exotic species that can be found only in China, Japan and the Appalachians. Why is it so special? When it’s dry, it has white petals, and just a few drops of water can make it transparent and it seems that it’s made of glass. You can identify it by its large leaves shaped as an umbrella – its name tells about it. The species can grow up to 40 centimeters tall and usually bloom between spring and summer, always in some shade as it can’t withstand heat or sun. If you create similar conditions for umbrella leaf, you can get this unique plant for your garden and enjoy stunning transparent flowers.
