Solomons Seal and Rhodo

A week ago on a local walk I came upon this beautifully rich red-orange rhododendron and then noticed it was complemented with Solomons Seal flowers. Interestingly this evening I noticed Chris Mousseau from Prince Edward County, Ontario (Canada) had posted photos of Solomons Seal foliage that’s softly fading away as autumn progresses.. our seasons are perfectly opposite!

  1. A lovely combination. I enjoy the opposite natures of our seasons – it’s very cheering to see signs of new life and spring when things are going the other way here. 🙂

  2. I’ve yet to find this in the wild, but I’d love to. It’s range is limited to a very few counties in far, far east Texas. I’ve admired it in midwestern gardens, and it certainly makes a lovely pairing witih your rhododendron.
