Polygonatum biflorum, or Great Solomon's seal, is a large, upright, slightly arching, rhizomatous perennial with oblong, smooth, mid-green leaves, yellow in autumn, and clusters of yellowish-green to white, bell-shaped flowers hanging from leaf axils and blooming in late spring. Flowers are followed by ornamental dark purple berries in autumn and winter. The root is rhizomatous but non-colonizing. Polygonatum biflorum prefers to grow in fertile, humus-rich, medium to wet, well-drained soils. It thrives in partial to full shade. Doesn’t like hot summer conditions. Resistant to frost, but needs to be sheltered. Virtually, pest-free and disease-free, but slugs may be a problem. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning. Great Solomon's seal is a lovely, shade-loving plant perfect for shady corners of informal, cottage, and woodland gardens. Excellent for beds and borders, rock gardens, and shade gardens. Great when planted in groups and masses. Attractive to bees, birds, and butterflies. Good companion to hostas, ferns, and other shade-loving plants.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
