Description

It is said that when Convallaria majalis (Lily-of-the-Valley) sends up multiple tall stems full of its small sweet-smelling white bell-shaped flowers in the early part of summer, it signifies the return of happiness. Known as Lily-of-the-Valley, it is also considered to symbolize purity, sweetness and humility. Certainly these pretty little blooms that appear in vast numbers on the small plant, seem to evoke all three sentiments. But a word of warning, Convallaria majalis is said to be poisonous if any part of it is consumed in large amounts. As is often the case, it has also been used medicinally for centuries, but that’s on recommended dosages. This shade-loving plant spreads easily!
