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.
This rhizomatous perennial forms a nice clump and once established is very drought tolerant. Easy to propagate by division and makes a good ground-cover.
Native to mountainsides in southeast China.
The common name Solomon's seal relates to the biblical figure King Solomon.
