Polygonatum odoratum 'Variegatum' Variegated Solomon's Seal



Polygonatum odoratum 'Variegatum' has attractive dark green leaves with creamy-white edges that are borne on gently arched stems tinged with maroon. White, elongate bell-shaped flowers dangle in pairs from the leaf axils in late spring. This perennial is grown primarily for its foliage, which extends its season of interest by turning a lovely golden fall color. Polygonatum 'Variegatum' is rhizomatous and the plants will form colonies once established, but they are slow to get started.

Although it closely resembles our native Solomon's Seal, Polygonatum odoratum 'Variegatum' is native to Europe and Asia.

Polygonatum odoratum 'Variegatum' prefers partial to full shade and moist, humus-rich soil. It can tolerate clay soil. Prettiest in humus-rich soil with plenty of moisture, but is drought tolerant once established.

    We ship via UPS or 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.

    We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
