A cute little plant. Seems to need a moister, shadier location than some other Polygonatums or it will go dormant. Blooms in May in my garden.

Zone 7A, Petersburg, Virginia: A gardening friend divided her plants and gave me several clumps a couple of years ago. They have successfully spread and are thriving, even near the roots of a large red Japanese maple, where it was hard to get a shovel into the ground to make a planting hole. It is a lovely groundcover near hostas and brunnera.

Bought it 2 years ago, left it in the pot over winter (because I'm lazy and didn't plant it). It came back the next spring, got planted near the fall. Came back again this year, and it's absolutely a charming groundcover. I plan on buying more of it, if I can find it.

For some reason this easy to grow plant are still difficult to find in the plant trade. For me, it grows in a good groundcover. It also make a good edge plant in woodland shade.
They will spread like crazy so don't plant near other small plants that they will overshadows or steal water and nutrients from. You will get plenty of those in three years if there are no heavy competitions! Will grow part shade to woodland shade - doesn't seem to behave any different when you put them in those two different type of shadows.
