What is the plant
Lily of the valley is one of the toughest plants, capable of withstanding challenges that kill more timid ground covers. Not a true lily, it is botanically called Convallaria majalis, which means "May valley" and it is part of the asparagus family.
The plant blooms in the spring and early summer-usually May. The stems are covered with tiny white, nodding bell-shaped flowers that have a sweet perfume. Green berries may succeed the blossoms, later ripening to red or orange. The plant does, however, have its drawbacks, as it is toxic to animals and humans and has the reputation for being an invasive species. Lilies are so widely adored that the name has been loosely applied to many other plants, creating confusion for beginning gardeners.
