Lily of the Valley (Convallaria majalis) picture

The Lily of the Valley (Convallaria majalis) in this picture is growing below a rather large rhododendron bush in our front yard as groundcover. I chose it for very sentimental reasons. They were one of my Mom's favorites. Princess Grace of Monaco and Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton both chose them to be in their bridal bouquets. They are often chosen as a wedding flower. They have a sweet scent but are poisonous. Please consider that if animals or small children will be near them.

Lily of the Valley (Convallaria majalis) are native to Asia, Europe and North America. They will bloom best when grown in partial shade. They'll survive in full shade but won't flower as much. No deadheading is needed. They're often planted under trees but will definitely stand out wherever you decide to plant them in shade with their dainty looking white bells.
