Lily of the Valley are a shade loving, ground cover, wonderfully fragrant flowers which bloom in the early spring. Beautiful 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 the flowers have developed into scarlet berries. The Lily of the Valley is a perennial and the perfect solution for those hard to grow areas in heavy shade such as beneath trees, under leaves, or on a shady slope to control soil erosion. Convallaria is a deer-proof ground cover that will naturalize nicely. It grows from underground stems that spread quickly in the garden for great coverage.
