Comments: This small group consists of deciduous, rhizomatous plants, which are native to the northern temperature zones, such as Europe, Asia, and North America. These popluar plants are commonly known as Lily-of-the-Valley. These plants are valued as a dense groud cover and for their strong fragrance. Will spread unrestrained. Therefore, make sure to plant them where they can spread freely or within the confines of a sidewalk or driveway. In late Spring, stalks containing numerous pendant, bell-shaped flowers with scalloped edges arise in the midst of the leaves. The sweet scent of these tiny flowers is so strong it literally floats on the breeze. Although most flowers of these plants are snow white, there is a double-flowered variety, a pink flowered variety, and one with variegated leaves. Lily-of-the-Valley are traditionally used in wedding bouquets and make a lovely cut flower. They can even be forced to bloom indoors during the Winter.
