Is this a Solomon? I know there is a False Solomon, which I have, and the flowers are yellow..

The short answer is no.
The long answer is that it is very much like solomon seal, but twisted stalk flowers have tepals that are not fused together. They spread apart. So, what is a tepal? When the petals and the sepals look alike they call them tepals. Lily's are a good example of tepals. Solomon seal and twisted stalk are in the lily family.

This particular twisted stalk is Streptopus roseus
