    Ever popular, lily-of-the-valley is an excellent groundcover plant for moist, humus-rich areas of the garden, quickly spreading to form a fragrant carpet of pure white, bell-shaped flowers and long, dark green leaves. The plant flourishes in sun or partial shade, and the diminutive, bell-like flowers are traditionally an important part of spring wedding bouquets.

    This convallaria has been field grown, however in order to keep the roots hydrated and promote fresh new growth, we have potted them up. Therefore your plant may not have a well developed root system just yet, so you should not worry if the soil falls away when you are planting it out.

  • Garden care: Divide and replant congested colonies in September, applying a generous mulch of composted leaf mould around the base of the plant.

  • CAUTION toxic if eaten
