Polygonatum odoratum thunbergii 'Variegatum' (Liliaceae)
(po-li-go-NAH-tum oh-do-RAH-tum thun-BER-jee-eye)
Variegated Japanese Solomon's Seal

We eagerly await the fat pink shoots of this Solomon's Seal in spring. Soft-green leaves etched with creamy markings unfurl along purple-tinged arching stems. White bell-shaped flowers shyly dangle beneath the elegant foliage. This Japanese Polygonatum is nice and vigorous; forms a loose fountain, eventually spreading into a beautiful colony in moist semi-shade. Topping off its long season, plants turn a rich golden yellow in fall.
