The text of this article mentions the Liliaceae as a family, the taxobox the ruscaceae. One or the other must change, the curent version is inconsistent.

The text of Ruscaceae says that the family is excepted by just a few taxonomists. Does that make it sensible to adopt it in the english wiki?

The true Soloman's Seal?[edit]

The picture on the site is labelled Polygonatum multiflorum, but check on the picture and it is said to be Soloman's Seal - which is Polygonatum biflorum. This picture to me looks like the multiflorum, big leaves, but which is correct, label on the page or name of the flower as given on the the [picture psge? --Dumarest 17:38, 25 May 2006 (UTC)

To continue, I go back to thinking biflorum, since it has multiple blossoms undet the leaf stem, not the single blossom at the end of the stem. --Dumarest 12:05, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

Traditional medicine[edit]

I have just added medicinal information to the page Polygonatum odoratum. As I have proceeded to include Polygonatum odoratum in the "medicinal plants" category, I have found that Polygonatum was already in the category. I think that it is not appropriate, since Polygonatum refers to a genus. I see that the editor of this information used the same source as me: my compatriot Pius Font i Quer. It is a fact that this scientist only talks about Polygonatum odoratum. I therefore propose to suppress the information relative to traditional medicine from this page.--Auró (talk) 12:25, 13 July 2012 (UTC)

According to the reference 3 on this page, P. biflorum is also used medicinally. Perhaps several species have medicinal uses? Sminthopsis84 (talk) 13:45, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
It maybe that a more careful consideration will be needed. Additional information is welcome.--Auró (talk) 09:04, 14 July 2012 (UTC)
