(Polygonatum multiflorum (L.) All.)

47. Solomon's Seal

As a garden plant the Solomon's seal is familiar to everybody, but it is native to Britain, and although not common can be found growing naturally in some shady woods. It has a long stem which arches gracefully and carries a double row of simple leaves, arranged alternately. From the axils of the leaves hang clusters of greenish-white flowers. These open in May and June, and are succeeded by small berries, blue-black in colour.
