Solomon's seal

Polygonatum multiflorum

''Polygonatum multiflorum'', the Solomon's seal, David's harp, ladder-to-heaven or Eurasian Solomon's seal, is a species of flowering plant in the family Asparagaceae, native to Europe and temperate Asia. In Britain it is one of three native species of the genus, the others being ''P. odoratum'' and ''P. verticillatum''.

It is a rhizomatous perennial growing to 90 cm tall by 25 cm broad, with arching stems of alternate leaves, and slightly necked, pendent tubular white flowers with green tips, hanging from the undersides of the stems. It is valued in cultivation for its ability to colonise shady areas, and is suitable for a woodland style planting.

The specific epithet ''multiflorum'' means "many-flowered".

The hybrid ''Polygonatum'' × ''hybridum'' has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
