Chinese Evergreen Solomon's Seal. This evergreen Solomon's Seal will reach 24-28" in height and will slowly clump out as it grows. I have found numerous sites which lists this species as only 12" in height, but Flora of China lists it as getting to 32" (80 cm) high. Maybe there are several different clones floating around out there. Here in zone 8 its stems are lined with white lily-like flowers at each leaf node. Grow in shade with uniform moisture and good drainage. We had our coldest two winters on record for the winters of  2009-1- and 2010-11, and there was not a single burnt leaf on them. It really makes a dramatic statement in the shade garden where it contrasts well with Hostas and it makes a great tall ground cover for massing. It can be easily divided while it is dormant from fall through winter.
