Polygonatum humile "Tom Thumb" (Dwarf Solomon's Seal)
Polygonatum humile, a diminutive Solomon's Seal from Japan, is a reliable spreader and a valuable addition to the woodland garden. "Tom Thumb" only grows to about six inches, but for such a small plant, it makes a big statement. The leaves are a beautiful, deeply veined emerald green, and the dangling, fluted ivory bells are large for the plant, but that's not all. Upon closer inspection, each fragrant bell looks as though the tip has been dipped in the same green as the leaves. Polygonatum humile "Tom Thumb" prefers partial shade in Zones 5-8. Quarts.
