Polygonatum odoratum var. pluriflorum 'Variegatum'

variegated Solomon's seal

Herbaceous Perennial

Best known for graceful arching stems, bejeweled with dangling white blooms borne under variegated foliage, this elegant display belies its tough constitution. Solomon's seal is valued for its ability to tolerate deep shade and dry soil once established. Wonderful as a sweeping groundcover in woodland gardens, or pair it with other shade-loving perennials such as hosta and ferns.
