  • 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 a tisane in traditional Chinese medicine, which is called dungulle in Korea.

    Some Polygonatum shoots are edible, cooked like asparagus, as are the roots - after appropriate treatment - being a good source of starch
