Disporopsis

Excellent evergreen alternatives to Solomon's Seal (Polygonatum) for shady places, even quite dry. Mostly with creamy bell-like flowers followed by berries.

Disporopsis have proven to be amongst the toughest, easiest and most reliable evergreen woodland plants we grow.  They do need to be out of the worst cold winter winds (or they will loose at least some of their foliage) but are otherwise very hardy.
