Polygonatum multiflorum (Solomon's-seal, David's-harp, Ladder-to-heaven) is a plant species of the genus Polygonatum. In Britain it is one of three native species of the genus, the others being Angular Solomon's-seal and Whorled Solomon's-seal.Polygonatum (King Solomon's-seal, Solomon's Seal) is a genus of about 50 species of flowering plants within the family Ruscaceae, formerly classified in the lily family Liliaceae.
Some species of this genus have medicinal properties, and some (in particular P. sibiricum) are used as an tisane in traditional Chinese medicine, which is called dungulle in Korea.Revolving primarily around the root, "Solomon's Seal" are traditionally used in a range of afflictions from menopause to broken bones. As a topical application, the root are said to expedite the healing of cuts and bruises, skin irritations and inflammations, and as a face wash is good for acne, blemishes and all kinds of imperfections of the skin. When consumed as a tea, it is said to alleviate a range of symptoms associated with menopause, indigestion, diabetes, broken bones, insomnia, kidney pains, and even infertility.[citation needed]
Its use to fight diabetes was first observed in 1930 by Langecker. After experiments, he concluded that it was effective in fighting nutritional hyperglycemia, though not that caused by adrenaline release, probably due to its content in glucokinin.

Polygonatum multiflorum è una pianta che fa parte della famiglia delle Liliaceae.E' una pianta erbacea perenne. E' dotato di un rizoma orizzontale nodoso per le cicatrici circolari lasciate dai fusti degli anni precedenti. Dal rizoma diparte un fusto alto fino a 80 cm, arcuato alla cima. Le foglie sono inserite nella parte superiore del fusto, alterne e rivolte verso l'alto, hanno forma ovale; da giovani hanno la superficie pieghettata longitudinalmente. I fiori, bianchi e soffusi di verde all'estremitá, stanno in gruppi di 2-5 inseriti su un unico peduncolo. I frutti sono bacche nere bluastre. Il Sigillo di Salomone appare in primavera dapprima sotto forma di germoglio, senza mostrare le foglie ancora arrotolate attorno al tenero stelo, e può essere confuso con quello del Luppolo (Humulus lupulus L.) con tragiche conseguenze in quanto la pianta contiene veleni mortali, gli stessi del Mughetto e della Digitale. Pericolo ancora maggiore possono rappresentare le bacche che, con il loro aspetto invitante, potrebbero essere ingerite dai bambini

E' bellissima. Fiori tutti perfettamente a fuoco. Gestita alla perfezione l'intensa luce sul bianco di questi splendidi fiori.

You have such a varied range of flora to choose from in your country, Luciano.
Do you also travel around to get at those fantastic species like this one?
The colour of these shapely flowers growing in a row is so very delicate again.
You have selected the bunch thoughtfully, transforming it into a lovely composition.
Thanks and regards.

C'est une plante que j'aime beaucoup, car elle fait partie des plantes que j'aimais déjà enfant. Ici, elles ne sont pas encore en fleur. Et ce n'est pas facile de les photographier, car elles aiment l'ombre. Sans flash, c'est excellent. Très belle composition et netteté.
Amitiés,
Catherine

splendia inquadratura di una bellezza traditrice (ma lo è spesso , non è vero??)

I did not know the name of this flower, which I remember from one place in my childhood home surroundings on the west coast of Sweden. Beautiful photo and very informative note!
