Polygonatum biflorum var. commutatum / Great Solomon’s Seal


A woodland wildflower with clusters of bell-shaped flowers hanging from arching stems. Blooms give way to pendulous dark fruits. Use in a mass or as a species. A beautiful foliage plant.

In addition to its virtues as an ornamental plant, Solomon’s Seal is an excellent edible (springtime shoots used like asparagus) and an important support for joint pains. Giant Solomon’s Seal is an especially productive variety for gardens and permaculture applications, creating large, nutritious rhizomes in many conditions including full sun, given adequate moisture.
