Maianthemum scilloideum BSWJ10407
A False Solomon Seal collected by the good folks at Crug Farm Nursery during a plant hunting trip to Central America. They found this once common species in Guatemala relegated to remnant populations at higher altitudes above 9000 feet where it found it spread rhizomatously to form small colonies. This decline of a species is a common situation particularly in lesser developed countries where human subsistence takes priority over species preservation. We can thank plant hunters for their efforts in preserving and conserving plants through cultivation. White flowers on stems to 18" and the rhizome is best mulched well to prevent frost from penetrating in winter.
