(syn: P. orientale) This native from Turkey east to Russia is the Asian equivalent of the US native P. biflorum var. commutatum. P. polyanthemum makes an attractive clump of 3.5' tall stalks, adorned in early May with clusters of white bells that dangle beneath the stems. Medicinally, the rhizomes of P. polyanthemum produce Smilagenin, a chemical used to treat cognitive dysfunction. Plant several in the garden to help with those loopy garden moments that become more frequent as we age.
