Rare in cultivation, this form from NW India of this Solomon's Seal is mainly an epiphytic species growing in mossy trees and on mossy, humus covered rocks.  The speckled pale pink flowers hang as small bells as the new growth elongates and as the season progresses, the flowers turn into attractive red fruits.  In frost-free areas, the fruit-bearing stems overwinter and overlap the flowering of the next year's growth which is very charming.  This is an evergreen species in mild areas and is some years for us but of late has been deciduous due to cold winters with no ill effects.  It has done very well in our raised shade beds and this is another plant we mulch in the fall as a winter precaution.    Good drainage.
