Polygonatum martini

Solomon's seal


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
An uncommon and variable species, this form can get stoutly immense to over 6' with broad paired leaves and fine white (no surprise there) bell-shaped flowers.  This was shared with us as a large bare root division in full bloom with the single stem taller than us which prompted much hilarity.  Contrary to intuition, this is the best time to divide Polygonatum.  These are not divisions as they wouldn't fit in a shippable pot but younger plants grown from seed. Enjoy!
