An easy companion plant in many gardens as it is pretty much bomb proof, growing in sun or shade and hardy everywhere. A multipurpose garden stalwart the stems can be harvested for use in the house for green and white floral displays, or as a floral filler when the flowers have disappeared for much of the summer. Best (and more luxuriantly impressive) in some shade and in moisture retentive soils.

This plant/cultivar has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit because it has proved to be reliable in appropriate conditions and a good performing plant. 

Planting Instructions

The Solomon's Seal family are hardy perennials that grow nearly anywhere. Their preference is for heavier moisture retentive soils in some shade, but many of ours seem to be grown in full sun, where the plants tend to be shorter, but otherwise fine. Some, though not all, are vulnerable to the Gooseberry Saw Fly, whose larvae may devour the leaves in early summer. P. x hybridum is a "bomb proof" plant for most gardens. Plant in semi-shade 4-5" deep and 4-5" apart, in rich garden soil, and water in well. A good strong stem with leaves paired along it with hanging whiet bell shaped flowers. 24-36" (90cm) tall.
