Ohhhhhh havalotta, I didn't even know there was a Polygonatum odoraturm verigated!...how lovely, and that snapshot is particularly nice with the black background. I'm further checking those out at the missouribotanicalgarden site, they remind me of vertical hostas!

I multiplied what I had of the Polygonatum odoraturms last year and ran a row of them around the outer perimeter of the H. bed.
Can't wait to see the combo together. They should complement each other quite nicely.

Ok well I have to mention that I am not a fan of mushrooms because they make me violently ill if I eat them. SO your morel photos make me nauseous! I do however appreciate the humor

I also have the variegated Solomon's Seal which is Eurasian in origin. It spreads fairly quickly by rhizomes, especially if lifted and transplanted from the original clump. I have it on the edge of the woods but plan to transplant it to the front foundation bed where there is essentially no sun and thin soil even with amending over the years. This plant seems to tolerate many conditions. I've had very few plants succeed in this area but I think this will do well there.

How tall does the Eurasian species grow?
I was at a plant sale last week and saw a Solomons seal that was I swear 3" or so in height! WOW I never saw one that tall.

I cracked and ended up purchasing one to plant as a focal point in the already established variegated Solomans I have.

All the variegated Solomon's Seal are Eurasian. Ours is about a foot and a half to two feet tall. The native Solomon's Seal grew about 2 1/2 to 3 feet tall in our Ontario garden. There is a variation of the native plant that is called Giant Solomon's Seal Polygonatum biflorum var. commutatum that will grow to 5 feet. I'd love to see that!
