It must be tough to be the "false
version" of something, but this pretty plant can be
distinguished from true Solomon's seal by the
flowering, which occurs on the tip rather than
along the stem in Solomon's seal. Also, the rhizome
lacks the seal-like pattern of the true species.
The berries cluster on reddish-purple stems.
They start out green with red speckles, progress to
a dusty pink and finally turn a translucent deep
red later in the season. Notice that about the time
the berries are red the leaves have turned a
hay-yellow and like true Solomon's seal can be
spotted in the understory of plants in
September/October quite readily.
I don't know which animals are eating these
