A native flower of Pennsylvania, growing nicely under a Maple tree in my front yard. Small, inconspicuous flowers.

The leaves provide a nice green canopy for these pretty little flowers.

Lovely soft colours:) Thank you for the discovery - do they open a little ? Do they have a fragance ?

@Lulette: Thank you for your comments. They do open up just a bit, but do not have a fragrance that I have noticed.

I didn't realise that Soloman's seal was a native of Pennsylvania. It grew happily in the place of my childhood holidays in the English Lake District. Here in Aus I haven't seen it, but now you have reminded me I will keep my eyes open and may be able to find it for a shady spot I have. Beautiful photo Anita.

@Jane: According to Wikipedia, this genus, polygonum, is distributed throughout the northern hemispheres, so you may be out of luck. Your comment caused me to learn more. Thanks!

Woops, please excuse spelling above. Jane

That is really interesting Anita! I didn't actually mean that I could find in "in the wild" as it were...just that I might be able to buy it in a nursery or grab a root from someone's garden. I'll keep you posted! Enjoy yours won't you. Jane

A delicate almost Japanese -y plant. Those leaves are an abstract unto themselves.
Great work Anita!
