A Solomon’s Seal going through puberty? Its leaves are slightly hairy underneath! Native to eastern North America and found in rich, deciduous, and mixed fields. Yellow-green flowers appear between May and June.
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.
