Smilacina, another woodlander


By Siris

Smilacina, another woodlander (Smilacina racemosa (False spikenard))

Arching stems to this woodlander, given to me by a friend, perhaps 30 years ago.

Bigger and more robust than Polygonatum. Also, I get one or two berries on it in the autumn.

It is next to an Acanthus, some of the leaves of that I have cut off. Didn't realise the Smilacina was such a nice clump. This Acanthus is for the chop this Autumn, then It's root eradication time!!!!
