Polygonatum latifolium 'Heronswood'
Heronswood's Wide-leaf Solomon's Seal
Item #: 9208
Zones: 5a to 9b, at least
Height: 12" tall
We are glad to share this wonderful form of Polygonatum latifolium (formerly Polygonatum hirtum) that we purchased from the former Heronswood Nursery in 1999. This Solomon's seal makes a compact clump of 1' long arched stems, adorned by eyeglass lens-sized green leaves and dripping with small white bells that hang beneath the stems, starting in late April (NC). Expect a 2' wide patch in 5 years...very cute and soooo easy to grow!
