Solomon’s Seal, Giant Live Root (Polygonatum biflorum var. commutatum), Organic

Solomon’s Seal, Giant  (Polygonatum biflorum var. commutatum)
Herbaceous perennial forest dweller distinguished from look-alikes by its huge size and flowers drooping in pairs from the leaf axils that occur below the sweeping arm of the plant. Plant in forest garden.  Root restriction is relished, and these often grow on top  of limestone substrate or in rocky places in the woods.  Shade garden conditions are also fine.  Upon receipt, plant the root about 1 inch deep in the mineral soil, horizontally, with the bud curving upwards.  Cover with mulch.  Emergence is in the spring.  Remember–perennials sleep, then creep, then leap–it may take some time for the new planting to become established.  there is no time to start like now!

    Question

    Will these roots grow in Hawaii? Both comfrey and turmeric grow well but I am wondering about several of your root options. Thank you!

      Hello Barb, Solomon’s Seal and most of our hardwood forest dependent temperate medicinal root herbs (ginseng, goldenseal, black and blue cohosh, wild yam, etc.) all require winter dormancy. Therefore, these are not a good choice for Hawaii. You can grow comfrey.
