Oh my! The creamy-edged leaves of Maianthemum japonicum 'Snow Dragon' are just scrumptious for those who like woodland treasures like false Solomon's seal. This amazing Japanese selection of Maianthemum japonicum emerges with lovely gold edged leaves that age to creamy white. Each 1' tall stalk, which emerges green and ages to a lovely wine color, is topped with a small terminal cluster of frothy white flowers. Maianthemum japonicum 'Snow Dragon' is quite rare and a slow increaser, so both are reflected in the price.
