Solomon’s Seal graces the shade garden with it’s curved, arching stems from mid-spring through fall. It’s simple flowers hang gently below the protection of the leaves in spring. It is hardy and easy to care for providing a lot of reward for the gardener with little work. Mine lives quite happily under the apple tree. I greatly enjoy watching it’s arched stems grow & unfurl in the spring and appreciate how it curves over the ground covers I have planted at its feet. It is well behaved spreading slowly in the garden and is a great plant to share with friends.
To read more about it including it’s many medicinal uses, read here. See more photos from my garden below.

I think we may have a few in the garden… I’ll look closer tomorrow evening! 😉
I love Solomon’s Seal also. I have it in my garden where it is slowly spreading to my delight. I have seen it in the wild (somewhat smaller and fewer flowers than the garden version). There is something very graceful about that arc of flowers…..
