Convallaria majalis

Lily-of-the-Valley

With a fragrance that has inspired perfumes, Lily-of-the-Valley has been grown for countless generations. Each cluster of small white bell-shaped flowers is framed by large, upright, low-growing leaves. Plant along walkways and in containers where their fragrance can be best appreciated during spring bloom. Excellent as ground cover in woodland or rock gardens. However, all parts of the plant are poisonous. Needs adequate cold chilling, and grows best in Zones 3 to 7. Plant in fall. Rootstock can be started inside for winter and early spring bloom. Once established, will form large clumps which live many years.
