Description
Convallaria majalis is a rhizomatous perennial up to 12 inches (30 cm) tall, forming extensive colonies. The stem grow with one or two leaves up to 10 inches (25 cm) long. Flowering stems have two leaves and a raceme of 5 – 15 flowers on the stem apex. The sweetly scented flowers are white (rarely pink), bell-shaped, up to 0.4 inch (10 mm) in diameter. Flowering is in late spring. The fruit is a small orange-red berry up to 0.28 inch (7 mm) in diameter.

How to Grow and Care
Despite its temperamental reputation, Lily of the Valley is easy to grow if you buy it ready potted in spring. Dried crowns take ages to get going and do not always survive and it may also prove difficult to establish chunks supplied by friends. In both cases, pot up the crowns separately in loam-based compost, water well and allow them to establish for a year before planting out. (You can do the same in midwinter, forcing the crowns for an early show indoors.)
At planting time, work in some humus, good garden compost or, even better, leafmould. Spread out any underground stems and cover with just a couple of inches of the planting mixture. Mulch well with leafmould. If you find that flowering is poor, an occasional dose of high-potash organic liquid feed may help.
Origin
Native throughout the cool temperate Northern Hemisphere in Asia, Europe and in the southern Appalachian Mountains in the United States.
