We purchased our first plant of Polygonatum 'Fireworks' for $100 in 2004, and have been in love ever since. This amazingly vigorous Japanese selection of Solomon's seal forms a patch of finger-like rhizomes, from which emerge 2' tall stems clothed in egg-shaped green leaves, flecked with creamy white. As the plants age, the leaves form a creamy white border while retaining the flecking. The stalks are also adorned with small white bells dangling beneath the stem in spring...a superb specimen plant or groundcover. While Polygonatum 'Fireworks' grows well in shade, it is much more vigorous with a few hours of sun, to 3' wide in 5 years.
