Polygonatum humile Dwarf Solomon's Seal



Polygonatum humile, also known as Dwarf Solomon's Seal, produces numerous short, upright stems of small, very glossy green leaves. White, bell-shaped, green tipped flowers dangle from the leaf axils in early summer. They are followed by blue-black berries. Polygonatum humile spreads relatively quickly by rhizomes, but is not invasive. It makes a very pretty summer ground cover for the shade. This herbaceous perennial is native to eastern Europe and western Asia.

Polygonatum humile prefers partial shade and humus-rich, moist, well-drained soil, but it is happy even in deep shade and wet soil.

We ship via UPS & USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.
