    Hello Annie,

    It's Solomon's Seal (

    Love it - I've just got some myself :-).

  • Brilliant, thanks everyone. I've heard it's tricky to grow. I wanted it for an area of dry shade, would it work there? 

  • Hi again,thanks for the link, just looked it up and seems not so tricky so will give it a go!

    Not tricky at all. Do best in a bit of shade

    I'd make sure it's well watered if it's in dry shade. Dry isn't great for them. Lovely plants - must get one for this garden  image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Watch out for Saw fly in the summer, they can decimate a plant very quickly. I wash the caterpillars off with water.

    I realize and I can see
