Herb Paris (Paris quadrifolia), packet of 10 seeds

(One Berry, True Lover's Knot)
Family:  Lily (Liliaceae)
Colony-forming herbaceous perennial forest dweller flowering to 8 inches tall, native to northern Europe and hardy to -15 degrees F.  Trillium-like plant with whorls of oval leaves and large, greenish-white flowers that give way to dark blue berries.  Berries and flowers are considered toxic, leaf is sometimes employed as a topical poulticing agent.  Used in homeopathy, this plant is also a low dose botanical, purportedly narcotic and aphrodisiacal (the lover's knot), also used historically for treating mercury and arsenic poisoning.  Plant prefers full to part shade and moist soils of forest or shade garden.  Seeds require a warm/cold/warm cycle to germinate.  This may be approximated by keeping the seeds in moist, warm (70 degrees F) environment for 1 to 2 months, followed by a moist, cold (40 degrees F) environment for 1 to 2 months, followed by planting in cool, moist shade.  In general this cycle is better accomplished by sowing the seed in outdoor conditions in the fall for germination in the spring.  Plants may be spaced 1 foot apart, and will eventually create a rhizomatous monotypic stand.  10 seeds/pkt , open pollinated
