Solomon’s Seal: A Field Guide
Solomon’s seal is one of those wonderful woodland perennials that makes you wonder why any garden would complain about shade.
With its arching stems, delicate sprays of flowers, and easygoing ability to mingle with other shade lovers, Solomon’s seal will add texture and depth to reflect dappled light beneath trees. There are more than five dozen species of Polygonatum, including varieties with variegated or solid green foliage and tiny candidate (Polygonatum humile) suitable for rock gardens.
Solomon’s seal will mingle happily with other shade-tolerant perennials including hostas, lady’s mantle, Heuchera, and lilies.
