Polygonatum biflorum – Smooth Solomon’s Seal – 1-Quart


An indispensible and elegant plant for the woodland garden. Graceful, arching leaf stalks rise above groundcovers, ferns and other woodland flowers without crowding or shading them. Below the leaves, dangle pairs of white, green- tipped flowers that are followed by blue berries in the fall. This species is similar to Downy Solomon’s Seal but with no pubescence on the small veins on the underside of the leaf. For gardeners, they’re interchangeable.
