A Prince for the Garden (Prince Charming Solomon's Seal)
Add beauty and a bit of fragrance to the shady spots in your landscape with Prince Charming Solomon’s seal.
This new compact Solomon seal grows 12 inches tall and spreads to twice the size in just a few years. The arching stems are covered with medium green leaves that turn bluish green in strong light.
White lightly fragrant one inch flowers adorn the plants for three weeks in late spring. The flowers are followed by green berries that turn purple in the fall. This combined with the yellow fall color makes this a stand out in the fall garden.
This low maintenance perennial is hardy in zones 4 to 7. It only needs occasional dividing and annual removal of dead stems.
Grow this shade tolerant perennial in gardens where the spring through fall beauty can be enjoyed. The graceful plant looks good in woodland gardens, perennial beds, and partially shaded rock gardens.
A bit more information: This perennial as well as many other landscape plants was introduced by Chicagoland Grows, Inc. Their Plant Introduction program’s goal is to evaluate, select, produce, and market recommended and new plant cultivars. The selected plants have been tested and proven reliable in the Midwest and are sold at various retail locations through an international network of growers and propagators.
