Whorled Solomon's-seal

Monocots (Monocotyledons)
Family: Asparagus family
Asparagaceae (was Liliaceae)

This is now very rare in the wild in the UK but Chiltern seeds have seed and I sowed some in 2006. They are now growing in my "north facing limestone pocket" and flower buds are visible for the first time.
