Polygonatum commutatum

A splendid , vigorous species from central and eastern states of the USA. Flowers in little clusters like milk bottles in a crate.
(I'm old, get someone to explain it to you!)
Sometimes treated as a subspecies of P. biflorum from which it differs by the leaves, which clasp the stems at the base. It is native to Missouri where it grows in rich, moist soils and can occasionally reach five feet tall.
