Description

It is a woodland herbaceous perennial plant growing to 50–90 cm (20–35 in) tall. The fluffy white flowers bloom in late spring. The plants produce green fruits that are round and turn red in late summer. Plants spread by cylindrical rhizomes up to 0.3 m (1 ft 0 in) long. The Latin specific epithet racemosum means "with flowers that appear in racemes".

Maianthemum racemosum grows in habitats in North America. The most robust and profuse occurrences of this plant are typically found in partial and deep, moist, soft soils. In the western part of North America an example typical habitat would be in a d ra or riparian corridor with common understory associates of Dryopteris arguta, Trillium ovatum and Adiantum jordanii.

The plant, like the closely related Polygonatum (Solomon's seal), is suitable for cultivation in moist, humus-rich soil in a woodland setting or in dappled . It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

Height: 50-90 cm, 20-35"

Type: Hardy perennial

Hardiness zones: 3-8

Note: Ornamental use only. These seeds and/or plants are poisonous.

Seeds per pack: 5

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. These seeds need a series of cold periods to break dormancy. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Cover them with plastic to retain moisture, and then place in a fridge for 4 weeks. Then bring them to room temperature for 2 weeks. They will not grow yet. Then another cooling period is required. Cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for another 6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. Germination is in 14-60 days after the warming period, sometimes longer. If possible, the best location for sowing is outdoors in cold frame or a cold greenhouse, where they germinate naturally after the second winter.
