Lily of the Valley - Convallaria Majalis
Gardeners do not need a green thumb to grow a lovely flower garden featuring the Lily of the Valley. The Lily of the Valley perennial is easy to grow a plant that gives off a sweet aroma. This perennial is hardy in zones 2-9. In these zones, it practically cares free. It comes back year after year with little to no care at all. This plant loves moisture and should be planted in an area with good drainage, that is partly shaded. These plants are adaptable and can be planted in full sun too, as long as the soil remains moist, though not water-logged. The plants don't do well if they are sitting in puddles of water. The plants grow to between six and twelve inches in height. Their low height makes them perfect for borders, or plant a complete flower garden featuring these dainty plants. They bloom in the spring and early summer, filling the air with their lovely scent. After the plant's bloom, they are still attractive thanks to the red seed pod they leave behind. They are fast growers and begin growing within about a week of planting. These plants can even be forced indoors, in the winter. It takes only three to four weeks. Many people do this to get enjoy the pretty white flowers, and the spring-like aroma they provide. The leaves and stems of the Lily of the Valley are a deep green. However, plants that are in full sun may have a less brilliant color. The flowers are white, delicate and bell-shaped. The flowers of the plant are beautiful in bouquets; they can be cut without any harm to the plant. Before planting it's a good idea to snip a bit off the bottom of the pip, this will get the roots ready for planting by waking up the plant and getting it ready to absorb moisture. Plant pips 1.5 inches apart.

 

Tiny white flowers blooming amongst a dense foliage of majestic leaves is a trademark of Lily of the Valley. A classic beauty that loves moisture, it is a perennial that spreads easily but can be controlled by cultivating in containers. This low-lying plant is a perfect groundcover to add a layer of beauty between other spring bloomers. An easy grower with a look unlike any other.
