Star of My Shade Garden ~ Solomon's Seal (Polygonatum)
This stately plant has quickly become one of my favorites for the shade garden. I love how the white tubular flowers dangle from the elegant arching stems.
This perennial is very much at home in shady borders & woodland or naturalized areas.
Solomon's Seal spreads by rhizomes & slowly forms dense colonies of graceful arching stems. It blooms Mid - Spring here in my zone 6a garden.
It's name is said to come from the roots, whose leaf scars look like the seal of King Solomon.
The chipmunks love to hang out on the stone wall near the Solomon's Seal. They have tunnels all through the wall & up into the front of the bed.... Busy little guys!
Watching the little critters that we share our gardens with is one of the perks of gardening! :-)
