Daily Flower Candy: Smilacina racemosa AGM

We’ve been searching for sturdy, shade loving-plants for our London garden, and where better to look than among the flora of North Amercia. Smilacina racemosa, the false Solomon’s seal, is a clump-forming perennial which produces fluffy plumes of creamy white flowers in spring. The flowers are followed by yellowish-green berries which turn to deep red in autumn. I love the plant association, shown here, with Euphorbia grifitthii ‘Fireglow’ – something I’ll be trying at home.
