False Solomon's Seal
False Solomon's Seal, also called False Spikenard, is sometimes is confused with True Solomon Seal. The True Solomon Seal belongs to Polygonatum and False Solomon's Seal belongs to Smilacina, both are in the Liliaceae (Lily) family. These perennials spread by roots along marshy banks and damp woodlands. The name Spikenard is given to this plant because of the "nard", a fragrant ointment that was made from the flowers.

You will find this flower starting to bloom in May and in higher elevations through June. The stem can grow up to 3 feet tall, leaves are parallel and veined with plumy clusters of flowers forming at the tip of the stem. The flowers are quite fragrant, starting off a brilliant white then quickly turning a creamy color. You will often find this flower growing in large patches with its flowers against deep green foliage. A couple of good trails to see False Solomon's Seal is North Fork Sauk and Bedal Creek, also the Scenic Backroad Drive to Cumberland Pass.
