Noteworthy Characteristics:

Polygonatum is a genus containing about 60 species of rhizomatous spring-blooming, woodland perennials which range in height from 9” tall (P. humile) to 7’ tall (P. biflorum var. commutatum). Plants typically feature (1) erect to arching stems bearing alternate (sometimes opposite or whorled) leaves which often turn yellow in fall, (2) pendant, usually white, tubular, spring flowers which droop from the leaf axils, (3) spherical berries which mature to red or black, and (4) many-jointed horizontal rhizomes.

Genus name comes from Greek words poly meaning many and gonu meaning knee joint in reference to the jointed plant rhizomes. Early herbalists believed that plants with jointed rhizomes were helpful in treating human joint disorders.

Common name of Solomon’s seal is usually considered to be in reference to the large, circular seals (leaf stalk scars) left on the rhizomes each year. However, some authorities suggest that the common name actually refers to “wound sealing properties” of the plant.

‘Prince Charming’ is a creeping, rhizomatous, herbaceous perennial hybrid cultivar that typically grows to 12” tall but spreads somewhat vigorously over time to 2-3’ wide. Parentage is unknown, but is believed to be the result of an open pollination of P. biflorum (female parent) and P. humile (male parent) which occurred in Hebron, Illinois in 2003. This cultivar is particularly noted for its compact height, mid-spring bloom, pronounced ridge (ligule) at the point of leaf attachment, ability to bloom well as a young plant, green-maturing-to-blue/black berries and yellow fall foliage color.

Upright-arching blue green stems rise from plant rhizomes to 12" tall in spring, each stem bearing an average of 14 alternate, conspicuously-veined, broad-elliptic, blue-green leaves (each to 3" long). Tubular (6 fused tepals), greenish-white flowers (to 1" long) dangle in spring (May) from the upper leaf axils in pendant cymose clusters (1-3 flowers per cluster) with up to 19 flowers per stem. Flowers are followed by pendulous, globose, green berries (each 3/8" diameter) which hang downward from the leaf axils. Berries ripen to blue-black in fall as the foliage turns a nicely contrasting golden yellow.

U.S. Plant Patent PP22,304 was issued on December 6, 2011.

Garden Uses:

Best in woodland gardens, shady areas of rock gardens, or shady areas of border fronts. Good ground cover.


FAQs

Certain plants prefer colder climates and others prefer mild winters. So knowing what your hardy zone is very important. For example, if I needed to find out what my hardy zone is, I would go to Google and type in "Coeur d' Alene, Idaho hardy zone. It's that simple!

Yes, I only offer top size bulbs so you can rest assured that they will perform well and bloom in your garden the very same season. However, certain plants like Peonies may take two seasons to grow be for showing flowers. For best results be sure plant your bulbs as soon as they arrive. If you purchase bulbs in the Fall they should be planted in the Fall. If you purchase in the Spring they should be planted in the Spring (after danger of frost has passed).
