We purchased this splendid form of the Japanese Polygonatum odoratum in 2003 from the former Heronswood Nursery, who got it from Japan's Jinguji Nursery. Since then, Polygonatum odoratum 'Jinguji' has enjoyed a place of honor in our garden where it can be admired by all who visit. The 20" tall, arched, wine-red stems are adorned by egg-shaped green leaves, then decorated with dangling white bells in spring followed by lovely blue-black fruit in early fall. To quote Dan from 2003, "From an enormous contingent of Solomon's Seals in our garden, this rises to the surface as one of the most beautiful."
