Solomon's Seal

After cutting back the much overgrown back yard the solomon's seal is again able to come forth and show off for us.  A lovely shade plant, it's come back every year since we planted it, about four years ago.  That's more than I can say for the elephant ear plants. I've found a better way to get those though. Just go to the asian market and sometimes the mexican market and look for taro root.  I've seen it as cheap as 89 cents a pound. Just plant and enjoy. (variety not guaranteed)

Mine are maybe six inches out of the ground and their leaves are still folded.
