Solomon’s seal starts to unfurl in April; the fresh green foliage uncurls as the plant grows. Quickly after white-green flowers appear that hang as bells from under the arched stem. A truly beautiful woodland plant; Solomon’s Seal is a must for every shade-garden.
At De Warande Polygonatum multiflorum grows in the Lily of the valley and Yellow anemone meadow. A beautiful combination. Other good planting companions are; Arums, ferns, Campanula latifolia (Broad-leaved bellflower) or Smilacine racemosa (False spikenard). Solomon’s seal remains green for the whole summer, not dying off until the autumn.
Solomon’s seal is native to our European woodlands.
Polygonatum multiflorum is delivered as a fleshy rhizome with a growth point.
