Convallaria majalis Description

 Lily of the Valley is a shade loving groundcover which produces wonderfully fragrant flowers in early spring.

In spring, quill-like shoots unfold to green oval leaves. Fragrant, nodding white flowers appear on short stalks as if someone opened a bottle of perfume. By fall, flower have developed into scarlet berries.

Lily of the Valley is a perfect solution for those hard to grow areas in heavy shade such as beneath trees, under eaves, or on a shady slope to control soil erosion.

Convallaria is a deer-proof groundcover that will naturalize nicely. It grows from underground stems that spread quickly in the garden for great coverage. Grow in part to full shade and water heavy the first year to establish roots. This deciduous groundcover dies back to the ground in late summer.

 Pair with with bold leafed Hostas, colorful Heucheras or Hardy Ferns.
