Solomon Seal - Native Plants

" By night we lingered on the lawn, For underfoot the herb was dry; And genial warmth; and o'er the sky The silvery haze of summer drawn"  - Tennyson

Solomon Seal is one of my favorite wildflowers.  I planted some last year but unfortunately it also was dug up by some critter.  A friend recently gave me this plant and I am doing daily inspections to make sure the same thing doesn't happen.  Solomon Seal can be used in a tincture to help heal injuries to ligaments, tendons, and muscles.  Some people use it in teas to help with anxiety, etc.
