At least ten years ago, I purchased a package of bare root Polygonatum Odoratum Variegatum, better known as Variegated Solomon's Seal.
I just discovered this little known plant is the Perennial Plant Association's 2013 Perennial of the Year. If you would like to read more about this versatile shade plant from Purdue Yard & Garden News, click here.
These are my Variegated Solomon's Seal in a bed under my bay window. The hostas in this bed emerged much later this year with our cool spring. One is visible at the base of the Solomon's Seal.
The arching 18 - 20" stems are almost ready to bloom. The blossoms are not spectacular. I grow the plant for it's foliage, much like a hosta.
Do you have a Solomon's Seal in your garden?
