Polygonatum - Solomon's Seal

Delightful woodland plants which combine beautifully with ferns and other woodlanders. Tolerant of most shady positions they like humus rich soils typical of deciduous woodland. If you like Polygonatum, take a look at closely related Disporopsis, another genus of elegant woodlanders with exquisite tubular flowers that enjoy similar woodsy conditons to Polygonatum.

Check for Solomon's Seal sawfly damage in early Summer. Harmful if eaten.

Once established it's very tolerant of soils that dry out in Summer in shade.

{About}
We were asked for sweet woodruff so often that we now grow it. Mythical thug for a shady spot where it can spread and display its fragrant white flowers in Spring. Will tolerate dry soils. It was used most effectively as ground cover in a small, shady courtyard show garden at Chelsea 2012, and can be seen at Mottisfont forming a wonderful ground cover under a fig tree.
{Cultivation}
Galium will spread quite vigorously. So a plant that will survive in difficult situations.
