Polygonatum commutatum


Giant Solomon’s Seal

USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.438.010


The graceful, arching stems of Solomon’s Seal add an exotic touch to the shade garden and are often described as being architectural. This species tall stems of dangling white bell flowers in late spring, followed by a crop of blue-black berries in the fall. 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. CAUTION: Harmful if eaten.
