One of our favorites, this came to us years ago from Washfield Nursery in England as Polygonatum geminiflorum but according to Polygonatum expert Aaron Floden, this does not match recent collections of Polygonatum geminiflorum by Ron McBeath and our plant and is actually P. singalilense. This species hails from the Singalila Ridge area which runs from Nepal west and north to the Darjeeling area and up into Sikkim. This slowly but steadily makes a nice clump with the leaves arranged in whorls which are wider than typical for the more familiar whorled species. The subtle bit of elegance that sends us is the small maroon shading at the leaf axil. It sounds silly but style is so often in the accessories.
