Polygonatum falcatum / Narukoyuri ナルコユリ

Polygonatum falcatum is a 50-80cm perennial herb growing in forests, fields, or mountains. Stems are round without ridges, internodes relatively short, and the upper part curve in a bow way. Leaves are narrow and long, 8-15cm long, 1-2.5cm wide, in the shape of a lanceolate to narrow-lanceolate, with some granular processes on the backside's veins. Many young leaves contain white vertical lines in the center, and 1-5 green-white tubular flowers droop from axils. The flowers measure about 2cm long, with tip-parts dark green. Sap fruit, 0.7-1cm across, matures in black-purple. Bloom time: May-June.
