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.
