Picture in my profile. I found it in a friend's garden yesterday. I suspect it's something that grows from a bulb, but other than that I'm clueless. Any ideas?
cant click on your name to see your profile
Can't see your profile Franke, is it still set on private?
Oh crap. I thought i'd made my profile public. Hang on a mo.
Or Solomon's seal?
COME BACK! It works now!
Dicentra I think
Soloman's Seal. It used to grow in my last garden, but the slugs loved it and it used to be in shreds every year.
Yes it's Solomon's seal otherwise known as polygonatum
Looks like Solomon's Seal.
Yep, I'm wrong. Solomons Seal it is
Taffeta, thanks so much. I think it's Solomon's Seal (I've never heard of it). Funnily enough I also discovered dicentra yesterday. Both now on my list of plants to buy. Thank you
Crossed posts - thanks all.
wow its lovely
It is lovely, but is a martyr to Solomon's Seal sawfly - the little caterpillars can reduce it to a naked stem. Grr.
You are right CITGM, it was the sawfly caterpillars. The plants never stayed looking nice for long.
Never seen it before but I like it! I thought at first it was a variety of dicentra too. I'm not going to bother bloody buying it though, I don't need the pain of yet another munched plant.
