Polygonatum falcatum 'Variegatum'

Variegated Solomon's Seal

Polygonatum falcatum ‘Variegatum’ is a popular cultivar of Solomon's Seal. It features showy light green leaves edged with white. New stems are tinged with maroon red. Greenish-white tubular flowers droop (usually in pairs but sometimes solitarily) from the leaf axils along and beneath the arching stems. Flowers have a sweet, lily-like fragrance. Flowers bloom late spring to early summer (May-June). Solomon's Seal is a superior foliage ornamental for shady garden areas.
