SOLOMON’S SEAL IN BLOOM

Suddenly, there are flowers. Everywhere. Trees are coming into leaf. Gardens are bright with spring flowers. I have been nurturing a patch of wild Solomon’s seal for more than ten years. This year, perhaps because of all the rain, they are in overdrive.

I took these pictures less than an hour after the rain … two weeks of rain … finally stopped. Hopefully, we will get a few days of sunshine before the next monsoon hits.

If you are interested in the medicinal properties of this plant (and there are many), this is a pretty good place to start.

  2. They do look a bit like a bigger version of the Lily of the Valley. Do they have a nice scent?

    • Thanks Cee. They aren’t easy. The flowers hide under the leaves and it’s not a flashy plant. But they have really been loving all the rain, so they are huge and there are at least twice as many as there were last year.

  6. My patch also grew by leaps and bounds this year. Sure hope it isn’t a sign I’ll be needing more of its medicinal qualities. 😀

    • I was reading about that. Apparently this is not only a pretty plant, but a very useful one. With rather a lot of work required to reap the benefits. One of the interesting things is that these plants are huge. They are at least 50% bigger — taller, thicker stems and wider leaves — than ever before. Pretty impressive. I’ve been nurturing them at the edge of the woods for 15 years and finally, they’ve really grabbed hold.
