Convallaria majalis


Lily-of-the-Valley

USDA Zone: 1-9

Plant number: 1.160.050


One of the most common of old-fashioned perennials, and a favourite for growing as a groundcover in shady areas. Plants form a spreading clump of large green leaves, bearing short spikes of fragrant white bells in late spring. Takes a year or two to establish, then spreads quickly. May go dormant in summer. Tolerant of poor soils, even dry shade, but prefers a rich, moist soil. Protect from afternoon sun. Easy and adaptable, this will even grow well in tubs or mixed containers. CAUTION: Toxic if eaten.
