Polygonatum o. 'Ruby Slippers' (25) Bare Root Plants
Common Name: Solomon's Seal
We've been observing this phenomenal plant in our trial gardens for more than five years, so we've got the proof that this shade perennial will be a true performer. It gets its name, 'Ruby Slippers', from the bright red, upright and slightly arching stems that are red from base to tip. Solid deep green leaves have silvery undersides. The plants are produced in colonies and will spread in the garden. This is definitely a tough plant for shade. Like the species, white flowers are produced in late spring below the stem, rather than on top. At the leaf axils, blue berries follow and are held on the plant until late fall. Of Japanese origin.
