If there was ever a plant that deserved to be in this category it is Polygonatum humile. A delightful herbaceous member of the Ruscaceae family it razzles through the soil forming a tidy compact mass of foliage. Naturally found in open woodland and through grassland in the Himalaya’s and western China. Replicate the conditions in cultivation – semi shade and moist organic soil and this plant will send out rhizomes colonising bare soil. Pendulous, waxy, almost white bell shaped flowers shading to green. At the end silver gilt marking to the tip. These are borne singly in the leaf axil, several to each stem.
