Solomon Seal is related to the asparagus plant and is used for medicine and food.
The plant's stem forms an arch, and the flowers are tube-colored and off-white. Some blooms are a stark white shade, and other plants grow light green flowers. Solomon Seal thrives in shaded areas and requires fertile, damp soil. The plants will also thrive in acidic soil. It's best to plant the flowers in the shade. Even though it takes a while for Solomon Seal to become well established, nice clumps of flowers will eventually start to form.
The root of the Solomon Seal is a rhizome. When the stem breaks, it leaves a scar that looks like the Star of David, which is how the plant got its name. The leaves of the plant are lance-shaped and green; some leaves have white tips. During the fall, once the flowers are no longer in bloom, the dark blue berries develop on the plant. Solomon Seal also works well for water gardens and looks stunning with ferns and astilbe. The plant spreads quickly through rootstock, and it's best to plant Solomon Seal two or three inches apart for visual appeal.
Be sure to keep the soil well-drained for Solomon Seal to continue growing. The plant rarely needs pruning, but it's best to prune the plants sparingly about every three years.
If you're looking for a new addition to your garden or lakeside property, Solomon Seal is a perfect low-maintenance choice.
The flowers also give off a pleasant fragrance, which may motivate you to spend more time outdoors. The plant thrives best in hardiness zones 3-9 and provides beautiful shade for your home or office building. Purchase Solomon Seal rhizomes and transplant them into your garden. Once the roots establish, the plant will grow steadily and provide a dense colony of attractive flowers.
