Kayaba Brocade Solomon's Seal. I first found this incredible Solomon's Seal in Japan in a small specialty nursery in 2005. The most unusual aspect of this establishment was that it had a large collections of live raptors: hawks, eagles and owls, sitting all over the nursery. Some were in cages and others were just tethered to their perches. When I first saw a single stem plant of this selection in a 6" pot with its over-sized white margins, I was afraid to ask the price. It was over $300.00 U.S. currency. But I never regretted purchasing it at all. (You see. I don't play golf and I don't fish.) This cultivar is truly "awesome." That word is not overused when referring to this selection. There is a similar selection on the market with the cultivar name of 'Double Stuff,' but 'Kayaba Brocade' has even wider white margins. It is a fairly good divider as well. When dividing down to a single bud and rhizome portion, I will have three buds the following year. So each year I have been able to multiply about three fold.
