Solomon`s Seal – Is It Disease Resistant

Q: Please give me advice on Solomon’s seal. Is it disease resistant?

A: Solomon’s seal, Polygonatum multiflorum, is an excellent plant! The variegated form is my favorite. The leaves are a striking green and white during the spring, summer, and fall and turn a nice golden yellow when they fade in October. It needs partial shade and soil that stays somewhat moist during summertime. Plants spread slowly via thick roots to make an attractive patch. I’ve never noticed pests or disease on mine.
