Description

The Lily-of-the-Valley or Convallaria majalis is white. Or is it? This unusual and remarkably tough plant boasts soft pink, scented blooms that appear in late spring and keep on doing so every year. Convallaria majalis var. rosea (pink) are perfect for gardeners who lack green fingers, your delicate-looking beauties will tolerate less-than-perfect conditions with ease and will even remain evergreen if the summer isn’t too hot. Give your pink Lily-of-the-Valley roots a lightly shaded spot and almost any soil, and they’ll be happy to reward you with blooms worthy of fairyland and a scent that parfumiers have been trying to emulate for centuries.

As for maintenance, these pink convallarias plants require little attention and will ultimately form dense clumps of foliage and flowers. Sounds irresistible? You bet it is!
