Solomon's Plume
Maianthemum racemosum

Plumes of white flowers grace the arching stems in spring, and the bright red berries provide interest in the fall. The seeds are a favorite of Ruffed Grouse. Spreads slowly by underground rhizomes to form attractive clumps. Grows in acid soils under oaks and pines.
