Solomon Seal - Polygonatum Biflorum refers to plants of the genus Polygonatum found throughout the Northern hemisphere. Solomon’s Seal is a relative of asparagus and is used for both food and medicine. Solomon’s Seal has arching stems and hanging tubular cream-colored flowers. It grows well in shaded areas with fertile soil. Preferring rich soil in a damp, shady setting, this plant is slow to become well established but will eventually form nice clumps. It is best started from transplants or rhizomes since the seeds can take two or more years to sprout. A variety of species are cultivated, but the favorite in North America is the native Polygonatum biflorum.

Solomon's Seal is beautifully endowed with graceful, long, slender arched stems.
They have white to pale greenish white bell-shaped flowers that dangle from the stems. They possess alternating lance-shaped leaves, which are green and some are green with a white tip. After the flowers fall they grow a small blue-black fruit that resembles small grapes. Mature plants are known to produce more flowers then younger varieties. The root is a rhizome. The circular scar that it leaves when a stem is broken away resembles the Star of David. That is why it was dubbed the Solomon Seal.
