Product Description

  • The graceful, arching stems of Solomon’s Seal add an exotic touch to the shade garden and are often described as being architectural. This easy-to-grow, dwarf selection has green leaves on arching stems and clusters of dangling, dainty, 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 fall, once clumps are large enough. Usually turns bright golden-yellow in October for a brief but glorious finish to the season. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten.
