Silver Queen Shrub

Silver Queen Shrub

Silver Queen Shrub

I was given a start of these several years ago. I thought they were Hosta Lilies but I found they have grown two feet tall. And they do not spread out in the same manner as my hosta plants. I am curious to know if anyone is able to confirm what plant these are.


I call them Silver Queen here because that is one plant that I was able to find. I would love to have this verified if your readers recognize the plant and what it is called.


Silver Queen Shrub Plant 1


They look similar to the Hosta leaf so that is what I thought I was given. Now I see they are definitely not Hosta Lilies.

Silver Queen Shrub Plant 2


Any suggestions or contributions would be appreciated.


silver Queen Shrub Plant 3


Where is the best place to plant them? How tall will they grow? Do they like full sun or prefer shade?

Thanks,

Faye

I have been keeping a close watch on the plants...

P.S. If you like, check out my other article Hostas and Sun where I share how I have adapted my shade loving Hosta Lilies to thrive in full sun.

Thank You For The Feedback
by: Sally

Hi Everyone; This is Sally, owner of Nature & Flower Pictures and I just wanted to say thank you for posting and making suggestions on these pictures.

It looks like "Silver Queen Shrub" may not be the proper name for this plant after all. Thanks to Debbie's suggestion that it looks like Solomon's Seal.

As Faye says, if we were having a contest Solomon's Seal may very well be the winner. It certainly looks like.

Once the flowers arrive we will have the rest of the story. Faye has published another page called Hostas and Sun.

She may well have discovered the secret to changing a plant's nature and preferences.

Thanks Everyone,

Sally

WOW! DEBBIE

I looked at pictures of Solomon's Seal and, by golly, I think you are right. Although some pictures varied in coloring, there was one that appeared right on!

I am looking forward to the flowers appearing. It shouldn't be much longer.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will visit again! I hope to post pictures of 'her' flowers and berries.

I think we will have to change the name. lol

Many thanks,
Faye

Ann, Thanks for checking in on the page.

The plant does produce flowers but I have not personally seen them. I plan to take pictures this year if it does it's thing again.

Check in again and maybe I'll have some updated pictures.

Solomon's Seal?
by: Debbie

It looks like Solomon's Seal... If it gets white, fragrant bell shaped flowers, that's my bet. It likes shaded woodland areas, and looks about full size there :)
