Artist's Description

These beautiful, perennial wildflowers (also called False Lily of the Valley) bloom at the same time to just a little later than the “real” Solomon’s Seal in our area. The leaves are so similar that the plants are often mistaken for each other. They flower quite differently, however, with False Solomon’s Seal blooming on a panicle at the end of the stem while the “real” Solomon’s Seal had green, bell-shaped individual blooms along the underside of the stem.

False Solomon’s Seal likes partial shade and rich soil, growing happily on the edges of wooded areas and on the shady sides of ravines. Once the flowers are gone, the marvelous, lush foliage give a beautiful backdrop for other plants. Their range is, approximately, the eastern half of North America.

This picture was taken October 11, 2013, in Green Lane, Pennsylvania, USA. For more info you can visit:
