P. 'Kaleidoscope' was the first offering from Dan Heims of Terra Nova Nurseries, Inc. (Tigard, OR) from a cross between Podophyllum hybrid 374 (an unpatented proprietary plant) as the seed parent and Podophyllum hybrid 352 (an unpatented proprietary plant) as the pollen parent. These two Podophyllum hybrids are outstanding selections out of a hybrid swarm in a Japanese nursery, believed to come from P. difforme, P. delavayi, and P. versipelle. The new cultivar was chosen for its outstanding foliage - see the patent here

Kaleidoscope seems to be the most hardy thru the winter of the Podophyllum for me
