Maianthemum racemosum, the False Soloman’s Seal, is a superb plant from North America. Similar in appearance to the classic and well known Soloman’s Seal, this has arching stems carrying a series of pointed leaves and topped by sprays of wonderfully scented pure white flowers in early summer. Worth growing for the scent alone!
Spreading from thick underground rhizomes, once settled in, this quickly makes a good clump in the garden. Fully hardy. Easily grown in light shade and a rich well drained humus rich soil.
The naming of this plant is a bit of a mess – it is very commonly seen in cultivation under the old name of Smilacina racemosa.
