I went for a walk in the woods today and took lots of pictures. Can someone identify this plant for me.
Thanks for the help. After a little more investigation, I thought it was Solomon's Seal, thanks for confirming it.
Actually, it isn't Solomon's seal at all, but Smilacina racemosa, or false Solomon's seal. The difference is that Solomon's Seal's flowers hang down below the stalk, originating from the leaf axils.
Cedar's right on that - this grows in similar conditions, but tue Solomon's seal has a smooth stalk and twin flowers at each leaf axis.
Cedar and Kathleen
Thanks for pointing out the difference between the two plants. The book I has didn't explain it as good as the two of you did.
