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.
