(aka: Polygonatum humile A1K-043) For years I thought I knew Polygonatum humile from the commonly sold dwarf Japanese form, but when I encountered the typical species for the first time just south of the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), near Korea's famed Mt. Sorak, I didn't recognize it. The 1' tall stems of light green foliage are adorned in mid-April with small, dangling, white, axillary bell-shaped flowers. As the name implies, Polygonatum 'Run DMZ' spreads slowly, making a 4' wide, but non-invasive patch in 5 years...nice for the woodland garden in moist or dry soils.
