We have plantsman Barry Yinger to thank for bringing this nearly extinct, old Japanese cut-foliage cultivar into US cultivation. The translation of 'Byakko' to "White Tiger" is apt to describe the amazing foliage. The red stems are adorned with leaves which emerge solid green and then the half closest to the stem magically morphs to creamy white. Polygonatum 'Byakko' is reasonably vigorous, considering the large amount of white on the leaves...expect a 30" tall x 2' wide clump in 5 years. This is truly a magical plant for the woodland garden.
