Hairy Solomon's Seal (Polygonatum pubescens)

(Solomon's Seal, Hairy - 01) The identification of hairy Solomon's seal can be a little difficult without a magnifying glass to clearly see the minute hairs growing along the veins on the underside of the leaves. These hairs are the only distinguishing feature to identify this species from smooth Solomon's seal, Polygonatum biflorum. The classic arching plume with alternating elliptical-oval leaves is the main feature that helps identify all Solomon's seal species.
