Suggested Uses: Solomon’s Plume is a very nice ground cover for a woodland garden or shoreline restoration project. Its rhizhomatous root system makes it a good choice for soil stabilization and erosion control. The plants die back to the ground each year and leave a small scar on the rootstock. This scar is similar to Solomon’s seal.

Native Range: Native to woodlands throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Pollinators: Pollinated by bees, moths, and flies. Birds and small mammals eat the fruit.

Flowers: The flowers have 6 sepals and 6 stamens. The anthers are pale yellow and the ovary is superior.

Leaves: The oblong leaves alternate along the branch and have 3-5 main veins.

Other Names: False Spikenard, Feathery False Lily of the Valley.
