Native to North America, Solomons Seal is a beautifully elegant woodland plant with its arching stems and dangling flowers that line up on the underside.

With its spreading and clumping habit, it makes for a lovely groundcover in shady spots. 

Watch for the first shoots to appear in early spring, growing from its rhizomes that have overwintered under the soil.
