Giant Solomon's Seal

Giant Solomon's Seal

This woodland species in the lily family produces a delicious green spring vegetable. It should be harvested just prior to the leaves opening. The flavor is much like a mild asparagus or spinach and can be eaten fresh or lightly steamed. Numerous cuttings in season can be taken as it has a large rootstock. Plant in light shade. Our seed source originally came from oak woodland in southwest Michigan where the plants grew to 5 ft. tall. Grown both from seed and cuttings at our farm.
