Wild Flowers of Sleepy Hollow Lake
Hairy Solomon's Seal (Polygonatum pubescens)

(Solomon's Seal, Hairy - 01a) The next thing to do in identifying the smooth Solomon's seal is to look at the end of the stem. If there is a fruit or a flower cluster, it is a false Solomon's seal. Smooth Solomon's seal looks like it has a terminal leaf, which moves to the side as additional leaves sprout from the end of the stem. The next feature to look for is the fruit or flowers hanging down from the under side of the stem, and which can be seen between the leaves in this photo.
