Convallaria majalis Lily of the valley
Common Name: Lily of the Valley
A charming, old-fashioned favorite. Arching racemes of pendulous, bell-shaped, pure white flowers appear in spring and last for several weeks. These blooms are very fragrant; they are even used in making perfume! Tiny orange berries follow the flowers.
Despite the dainty appearance of the blossoms, Convallaria is actually a tough, vigorous groundcover. Use it to cover slopes and riverbanks or in shady woodland sites, even under trees.
