Description
 
Evergreen Solomon's Seal.  This is a darn good plant from Sichuan China that really performs here in the Northwest and we've heard good reports from the Midwest, Northeast and Southeast as well.  This makes dense clumps of upright stems clad in glossy evergreen leaves below which dangle white bells in spring.   We typically cut back last year's growth in spring so we can enjoy fresh new.  This is an easy plant.  These are divisions from a plant we have grown since the 80's from probably the first clone to be introduced to cultivation.  This was introduced to the US by the late Ken Gambrill who formerly the curator at the Rhododendron Species Botanic Garden.  Ken found this at the famed Washfield Nursery in England.
