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.
You are right CITGM, it was the sawfly caterpillars. The plants never stayed looking nice for long.
It is lovely, but is a martyr to Solomon's Seal sawfly - the little caterpillars can reduce it to a naked stem. Grr.
wow its lovely
Crossed posts - thanks all.
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
Yep, I'm wrong. Solomons Seal it is
Looks like Solomon's Seal.
Yes it's Solomon's seal otherwise known as polygonatum
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.
Dicentra I think
COME BACK! It works now!
Or Solomon's seal?
Oh crap. I thought i'd made my profile public. Hang on a mo.
Can't see your profile Franke, is it still set on private?

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?
