More Information About Disporum

Disporum is a genus of plants known as Solomon's seal, which also includes other genera like Disporopsis, Uvularia, and Polygonatum. Disporum is native to both the US and Asia. Despite many of the Asian disporum being from warmer climates, we have been amazed at their winter hardiness...some to Zone 5! Disporum are great, easy-to-grow woodland plants that combine well with both ferns and hostas.

Disporum can be clumpers or runners, forming patches of arching stems with bell-like flowers that attract butterflies. Disporum flowers are followed by single black berries. There are several variegated disporum cultivars that can brighten a dull shady spot.
