Solomon’s Seal is a great little shade loving herb. It is a delicate plant that hates the sun, but thrives and spreads in the perfect, shady situation. Closely related to Lily of the Valley, the tiny, white flowers will turn into small black berries.It is debated, but the flowers, leaves, and berries are said to be poisonous while the stem and the root can be eaten or used in medicine. I would suggest researching prior to ingesting this in any way. I hesitated even referring to it as an herb for this reason, but it is technically a very powerful herbal remedy that has been used for thousands of years to treat everything from broken bones and arthritis, to bruising and respiratory issues.
