This is a beautiful variety of Polygonatum and most of the variegated solomon seal in the plant trade is under this species with the small fraction of what's left going to East Asian Solomon's Seal species - more East Easian Solomon's Seal species should be more planted. It start out in the spring as a bluish green mixed with blue - red shoot that grows into a plant with stable variegated edged. The main negativity about this species is that it tend to wander, not staying in one spot and doesn't clump together well, growing more in a irregular loose clump because the previous year's shoot dies and a new one form at the edge of the rhizome.
