Jinguji Red Stem Solomon's Seal. I found this selection in Japan, but Dan Hinkley of Heronswood Nursery fame introduced it to the U. S. in 2003. Its origin was the Jinguji Nursery in Japan. It is typical of the species with its leaves and flowers, but its stems are a bright pinkish-red and will reach 20" in height with white bell-like flowers which are later followed by large black berries. It is quite vigorous and will fill an area very quickly. In Japan I frequently see it used as a pot plant. As a matter of fact Todd Lasseigne and I bought a beautiful porcelain pot filled with it and split the tubers between us. One should grow in a shade environment like any other Solomon's Seal with good drainage. It makes a great combination with Hostas.
