Maianthemum stellatum (Star-flowered, Starry, or Little False Solomon's Seal, or simply False Solomon's Seal; Starry False Lily-of-the-Valley; syn. Smilacina stellata) is a species of flowering plant in the family Ruscaceae, native across North America generally from Alaska to California in the west and from Newfoundland to the central Appalachian Mountains in the east. An everchanging seasonal plant with little white buds in the spring, followed by delicate starry flowers, then stripy berries and deep red berries in the fall.[1][2][3]

It is a woodland herbaceous perennial plant, smaller than its close relative M. racemosum.
