What Houzz contributors are saying:

Barbara Pintozzi added this to Great Lakes Gardener's May Checklist
The shade garden reaches its peak in May, with big, bold natives such as Solomon's plume (Smilacina racemosa aka Maianthemum racemosum, zones 3 or 4 to 7, shown here with the native Geranium maculatum) and later Solomon's seal (Polygonatum biflorum var. commutatum, zones 3 to 9). Their white blooms glow in the shade.
Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Garden-Friendly Native Alternatives to Overplanted Exotics
Hosta AlternativesThe great thing about hostas (Hosta spp) is that you can leave them alone almost forever. Unfortunately, no native insects can raise their young on its leaves, and just a small contingent of the insects frequent its blooms. With hostas used so frequently in gardens today, there must be one for nearly every human in the world. Try native Solomon’s plume (Maianthemum racemosum, syn. Smilacina racemosa) instead. It spreads slowly, blooms in late spring, likes medium to dry soil and gets about 2 feet tall. It’s native from Minnesota to Arkansas and east, and will support more wildlife than hosta — plus, it’s just as carefree. Shown: Solomon’s plume (Maianthemum racemosum)

Hosta Alternatives: The great thing about hostas (Hosta spp) is that you can leave them alone almost forever. Unfortunately, no native insects can raise their young on its leaves, and just a small contingent of the insects frequent its blooms. Try native Solomon’s plume (Maianthemum racemosum, syn. Smilacina racemosa) instead. It spreads slowly, blooms in late spring, likes medium to dry soil and gets about 2 feet tall. It’s native, and will support more wildlife than hosta — plus, it’s just as carefree.

Тени сада достигает своего пика в мае, с большой, жирный уроженцы таких как шлейф Соломона ( Smilacina гасетоза ака Maianthemum racemosum, зоны 3 или 4 до 7, показанный здесь с родным Maculatum герань ), а затем печать Соломона ( Polygonatum biflorum вар. commutatum , зоны 3 до 9). Их белое свечение расцветает в тени.
