Description from Prairie Moon Nursery:  Starry Solomon’s Plume is very easy to grow.  It is rhizomatous and spreads readily in many sun and soil situations, between 1-2′ per year.  Attractive leaves, flowers and green berries with maroon stripes that eventually turn bright red give the plant 3-season interest.  Narrower leaves and spike-like rather than feathery white flowers differentiate it from Solomon’s Plume (Maianthemum racemosa).

A former latin name is Smilacina stellata.  Other common names are Starry False Solomon’s Seal and Starry False Lily of the Valley.
