Plant Details

An unusual and uncommon evergreen relative of the Solomon's Seal. Very useful for a shady spot in the garden, including dry shade.

In late spring or early summer, small white bell-shaped flowers tipped in pale green are borne along the undersides of the stems. The flowers have a light, lemon perfume. The flowers are a long time in the bud, which is an attractive feature.

This rhizomatous perennial forms a nice clump and once established is very drought tolerant. Makes a good ground-cover.

Native to mountainsides in southeast China.

The common name Solomon's seal relates to the biblical figure King Solomon.

Height: 60cm

Common name(s): Evergreen Solomon's Seal

Although this plant is classed as evergreen, young plants may die back to ground level during winter and shoot again in the spring.

All our plants are supplied in 9x10cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
