Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section.

The picture of the plant is in the attachment. It has wide spreading palm-shape that kind of reminds me of wild geranium, but I'm not sure. The leaves are all attached in a central stem thats at ground height.

That's a Mayapple (Podophyllum peltatum) which produces an edible, though rare, fruit. It is poisonous until completely ripe, you can look up old time jam recipes on the internet. I also love its exotic foliage.
