I visited a plant nursery on the weekend and saw this plant (not for sale). Any ideas what it is please? I’d like to add it to a shady part of my garden but am unsure what it needs and how big it gets. Many thanks

    Polygonatum/Solomon's Seal

    It’s either Solomon’s Seal, or False Solomon’s seal. Will have to look up which is which. We have it growing in a damp area of woodland. It comes up every year with no help from us, then dies off by the end of the summer. Ours does often get eaten by something though, either slugs or caterpillars, leaving lacy leaves. Very low care.

    Nice while it’s flowering then it gets completely eaten away by caterpillars I think it’s Sawfly.
