    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.

  • 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
