LILY OF THE VALLEY     Convallaria majalis

Lily of the Valley is a traditional perennial which does well in shade or partial shade. This tenacious groundcover is drought tolerant and often thrives where nothing else will grow.

Perennial groundcover: Height 20cm (8in). Comes fresh from spreading roots every spring.

Foliage: Large, parallel-veined leaves which come individually from the crown. In full sun the foliage becomes ragged by mid summer.

Flowers: Very fragrant racemes of nodding white bells. Often used in cut flower arrangements.

Fruit: Decorative red berries.

Comments: Can become invasive. Should be divided every four years to maintain flower size.
