Plant Type: Perennials
A classic beauty for the woodland garden. Grown mostly for its clean, soft green foliage which turns yellow in fall, Solomon’s Seal is a charming plant for the shade. Standing about 18″ tall and arching slightly at the top, the unbranched stems with large, alternate leaves support the dangling white flowers below. On quiet spring evenings, the flowers exude a subtle lily-like fragrance. The stems are beautiful in cut flower arrangements.
Growing & Maintenance Tips:
Solomon's Seal is a natural plant for the shady woodland garden, even tolerating heavy shade. Deep, rich, moist soil is best. Solomon's Seal is sometimes slow to establish itself, but is very long-lived and easy to maintain once it does. Divide plants in the spring or fall.
