Great Solomon’s Seal – Polygonatum biflorum var. commutatum, 2021

One of the first things that struck me about this beautiful native plant, was the visual interplay between the leaves and the row of pendant flowers on each stem — this relationship seemed musical to me, with the regularly-spaced groups of blossoms suggesting a rhythmic series of chords, and the lush, curvaceous leaves seeming to perform a dancing melody above.
