Plant Description

Solomon's Seal is a common wildflower of moist, eastern woods. Its arching stems, paired leaves held parallel to the ground, and bell-shaped, white, pendant flowers are well known. The mature stems can arch up to 6 feet in height although 3 feet is more likely. Plants spread slowly and increase by means of knotty rhizomes. (Polygonatum comes from poly-gonu meaning many knee joints). A mature clump can be quite handsome and elegant. Use this plant where you can appreciate the pretty flowers and blue berries and where its bold architectural qualities are needed. Flowering is in late spring, fruiting is in late summer, and plants turn brownish-yellow before disappearing for winter.
