A staple of the shade garden, Solomon’s Seal blooms in May with dangling white bell-shaped flowers on an arched stem. In fall, leaves turn a lovely golden yellow. This plant gently spreads and can be easily divided and reset in fall.
This small tree provides interest in summer with its blue-green leaves and flower panicles that give a smoke-like effect. Leaves turn interesting shades of gold, copper and red in fall. It may be a single trunked tree up to 30′ tall or a multi-stem shrub in the range of 15′ tall. Easily pruned in the spring to control size.
