Polygonatum falcatum 'Tiger Stripes' (Solomon's Seal)
Polygonatum falvatum 'Tiger Stripes' (Solomon's Seal)
Zone: 6 - 8
Natural Range: Japan
Soil: Moist, humus rich, well drained
Light: Part shade, shade
Attributes: Deciduous, narrow, light green leaves with yellow stripes. Turn more yellow with more sun. Greenish white flowers in groups of 4 or more dangle delicately beneath the foliage.
Notes: Another really cool variegated form of Polygonatum for the lightly shady garden. They don't grow very fast so divisions will always demand a higher price. Because of its stature and growth rate 'Tiger Stripes' works very well with other tame perennials.
Companion plants: Trillium, Cypripedium, Epimedium, Erythronium.
