Variegatum’s elegant, arching stems produce creamy-white bells shaded by light green leaves, followed by indigo-blue berries in the fall. A truly unique, beautiful statement in the shade garden. The Solomon Seals make up an important group of North American woodland plants, and there are several types. This is the main species, with elegantly arching single stems which bloom in pairs of yellowish/white/greenish bell-like flowers all along the leafy stems. The common name comes from the fact that the root of this species bears a mark which some think resembles the Star of David, or the "Seal of King Solomon." False Solomon's seal, a similar-leaved species has completely different flowers. Both are great additions to any wild garden, providing lush greenery, lovely bloom, and then striking berries to the spring flower show.

        Hoping it will come up this season. I have some others, not variegated, that come up every year.

            Comments about American Meadows Solomon's Seal Variegatum:

            I bought a small clump of these at a yard sale several years ago and I wish I had bought more! The flowers are so delicate and beautiful. They first appear as little white tubes and then as they open up, they become little white bells with a green ring around the ruffled tip. An unusual addition to any garden, I love mine! They have multiplied so well and I have shared some with friends.

                  Did not have a single one grow. Bought because of the good price. Had grown Solomon Seal previously so thought this would be a good deal.I was wrong. Planted these right next to the ones I had planted earlier in the year and not a single one came up. Extremely disappointed.

                      I planted three roots and only one has come up. But then, I ordered them late in the season and am glad to have the one. I might try again with roots planted earlier in the Spring.

                      USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                      To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                      • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                      • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
