Polygonatum humile 'Shiro Shima' is a wonderfully stable streaked form of the dwarf, easy-to-grow Polygonatum humile 'Tom Thumb'. This is not Polygonatum 'Little Streaker', which we discarded years earlier along with a couple of temporary staff members, both due to instability issues. For us, Polygonatum humile 'Shiro Shima' forms a rock garden-sized 3" tall x 20" wide patch in 5years. The thumb-sized leaves are heavily streaked green and creamy white, and the stalks are adorned with small white tubular flowers in early spring...absolutely delightful, especially where it can be viewed at close range.
