(aka: Polygonatum odoratum A1K-008) Polygonatum 'Lemon Seoul' is our amazing 2004 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of the recently-named fragrant Solomon's seal, Polygonatum infundiflorum. We ran across this gem in 1997 on the Taean Peninsula of South Korea and knew immediately that it was something unique. The vigorous Polygonatum infundiflorum 'Lemon Seoul' forms a rapidly multiplying clump to 6' wide in 10 years. The 3' tall stalks are clothed with large 6" long x 3" wide, silver-backed, light green leaves and adorned in early May with white, pendent, bell-shaped flowers, three to five at each node, which exude a marvelous, sweet lemon fragrance...especially early in the morning. In fall, the foliage turns a beautiful gold and the long-gone flowers are replaced by large black fruit. We hope you can find a place in your woodland garden for this special Solomon's seal.
