Dear Pat:

I have seen the Great Solomon Seal in several places and always it seemed to
be where it was planted.  One place I remember was along a camp road in the
Bangor area near Pushaw Lake and another was last year in a city forest in
Portland near the edge of the forest area and where at one time a home might
have existed as there were other things like lily of the valley, etc.  But,
it is always nice to see different things.

See you at JBS.  Barbara

Subject: re Great Solomon Seal

Great Solomon Seal,  Polygonatum canaliculatum doesn't appear in
Flora of Maine... I am assuming that means it's not native to Maine or
it's name has changed?
I have found some growing near an old cemetery, so I am guessing
 it may have been brought there and planted years ago?

Please comment?
