Polygonatum commutatum (canaliculatum)
Impressive four-to-five foot native with large leaves on unbranched arching stems. Bell flowers hang along stems in spring. Colonies spread quickly. Wonderful at the edge of a moist woodland to provide a transition. Greenish white flowers appear in May.
Solomon’s Seal is a wonderful woodland genus with arching, branchless stems, and tubular flowers that hang from each node. Solomon’s Seal has large, dark blue fruit, and dark yellow fall color. It is an essential architectural plant for the woodland garden and will do well in deep shade. Competes well with tree roots.
