Solomons seal

£9.30

Solomons seal is a lovely plant for a shady spot, with long arching stems and dangling white flowers, therefore providing great structure to a woodland. The leaves last through to the Autumn when they will die down.  Solomons seal prefers a cool soil and once established will survive in a dry spot too. It grows a large corm which can be lifted and divided in Spring to multiply the plant. It looks great with other woodland wildflowers such as Stinking hellebore, Woodruff and Bellflowers.
