Noted for its ravishing variegated foliage, Convallaria majalis 'Albostriata' (Lily of The Valley) is a low-growing rhizomatous perennial forming a lush, spreading, weed-smothering groundcover. Blooming for several weeks in mid to late spring, sweetly scented, nodding, bell-shaped, white flowers hang along slightly arching flowering stems. Renowned for their heady scent, they rise above the showy foliage of paired elliptic green leaves striped lengthways with creamy-white. A real charmer and an outstanding performer, Lily of The Valley is trouble-free, requires little maintenance and is deer and rabbit resistant. Long-lived, it naturalizes easily to form extensive colonies.

  • Grows up to 6-8 in. tall (15-20 cm). It will spread quickly by rhizomes to form dense colonies in good growing conditions.
  • Thrives in part shade to full shade in evenly moist, fertile, organically rich, well-drained soils. It will grow in full sun in northern regions if the soil remains moist. Tolerates a wide range of soil conditions, including clay soils. Dry conditions will tend to restrict its growth.
  • A great naturalizer, it is an excellent choice as a ground cover and creates thick mats of fluted, dark green leaves. Can be grown under trees too.
  • Wonderful as fresh cut flowers. A favorite of florists!
  • Lily of the Valley greatly benefits from an annual application of organic compost each fall.
  • Propagate by division in autumn.
  • Toxic if ingested
