Starry False Solomon's Seal

Smilacina stellata is one of the easiest natives to grow at home. It spreads like crazy from abundant rhizomes, and grows in just about any habitat, wet or dry. The herbage of this lily is notably elegant, resembling the leaves of an orchid.

These look delicate but they are so tough, it's incredible! We're in drought here in the Chicago area and I really haven't given them supplemental water. They look fresh as a daisy!
