Solomon’s plume or false Solomon’s seal (Maianthemum racemosum, formerly Smilacina racemosa) is a woodland wildflower native to much of the eastern half of North America. Typically reaching 2 to 3 feet tall, the arching stems carry alternate, rich green leaves and are tipped with a cluster of small, creamy white flowers in mid to late spring. The flowers develop into round, red-speckled berries that ripen to solid red in early fall. Partial shade; average to moist soil. Perennial; Zones 3 or 8.
