$6.00 – $30.00
ROOTS ship starting late September. If you order ROOTS along with seeds, the seeds will ship first and the roots will follow in season. We dig after dormancy in order to assure a good bud set–usually beginning in late August and ending early December. We ship roots inside the US only.
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!
