Polygonatum 'Variegatum' - Variegated Solomon's Seal
Polygonatum odoratum 'Variegatum'
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. Plants may be divided in the spring or fall. The fleshy white tubers should be planted just below the soil surface with the stems pointing upwards when transplanting. This variety is not considered native as it is a different species than our native which is Polygonatum biflorum.
.This variegated variety is grown mostly for its clean variegated, soft green foliage which turns yellow in fall,. 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.
