Solomon's Seal

Solomon's Seal (Polygonatum biflorum)


In bloom May 10 - July 4. Slender curving stems 1-2 feet tall with oval parallel veined leaves. Bell shaped greenish white flowers hang in clusters among the leaves. The common name of this plant may be based on its presumed medicinal uses. Root extracts are supposed to speed healing (sealing) of wounds and bruses.
