I think this Japanese selection of their native Solomon's seal is way cool...but then I've never been known for my normal tastes. Polygonatum 'Koryu' is a unusually esoteric (ugly in an academically wonderful sort of art films) selection of the popular Polygonatum odoratum. This bizarre, early emerging (early March in NC) Solomon's seal, produces 16" tall, slightly arching stalks clothed with grey-green Easter egg-sized leaves, each highlighted by a raised dragon-ridge down the center. Below the leaves in spring are a few small, dangling white flowers, but grow this for the leaves...assuming you're into severely deformed plants.
