Variegated Solomon’s Seal

Mentha longifolia

Mentha longifolia

The 2013 plant of the year is the variegated Solomon’s seal, a plant that is shade tolerant. Good for growing under trees. It has beautiful white flowers that are reminiscent of lily of the Valley. Despite having the name of Solomon, the plant did not grow in the Holy Lands. Although I have heard that Solomon’s Seal is deer resistant, several of my plants have been eaten by them.
