Polygonatum falcetum variegatum


This Japanese perennial is a great plant for the woodland or shaded border. Polygonatum falcatum ( aka Polygonatum odoratum var.thunbergii) ‘Variegatum’ has striking Sprung/Summer foliage. It is easy to grow in a shady or semi-shady area with good soil and spreads in moist fertile soil. The variegated foliage brightens up shaded areas. Graceful, unbranched, stems neatly arranged with alternate, oval, white-edged green leaves on one side and clusters of small, pendulous, tubular white flowers on the other.

The graceful, arching stems of Solomon’s Seal add an exotic touch to the shade garden and are often described as being architectural. This selection has green leaves edged with creamy-white and dangling white bell flowers in late spring. Excellent for cutting. Beautiful in the woodland garden, combining well with ferns and Hosta of all kinds. Plants are a little slow to establish, but clumps are long-lived and carefree. May be divided in early Autumn, once clumps are large enough. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten.
