Solomon’s SealPolygonatum biflorum 36" tall, or taller. Clumps of 3'-long graceful arching stems with long narrow alternate leaves.
Greenish-white bell-shaped tubular flowers dangle in rows along the stems in late spring and become small round blue-black fruits in early fall. Roots are traditionally used to strengthen weak joints and ligaments and act as a connective tissue anti-inflammatory. Don’t confuse it with False Solomon’s Seal, which has a plume-like flower at the end of the stem.
Can be slow to show itself: I planted six crowns in spring 2013 that didn’t sprout until fall of 2014! By 2015 they were looking beautiful.
Ideal for the shade or woodland garden but will grow in full sun if you insist. Plant 18-24" apart. Z3. (bare-root crowns)
