Description

Make a shady space sparkle with the pearly white blooms of this extra prolific Lily-of-the-Valley, Convallaria majalis 'Prolificans'. Unlike the standard form, this one will treat you to more a profuse display on branched stems, plus the flowers have a double layer of petals for added impact. Not forgetting the unmistakable sweet fragrance of Lily-of-the-Valley which is just the cherry on the cake.

Convallaria is a hardy spreading plant which over time forms an attractive and effective ground cover with its lush green leaves. Every year in spring, this double-flowered Lily-of-the-Valley bursts into a flurry of white flowers which fill the air with fragrance as well as accenting the garden. Thriving in a shaded space with a moist soil, Convallaria majalis 'Prolificans' is perfect for introducing a dash of glitz to what could otherwise be a gloomy spot. If you like to cut your own flowers for indoors, a clutch of these dainty stems makes a very pretty spring posy indeed.

Useful information

    • Soak your Convallaria majalis 'Prolificans' roots in water for 3-6 hours prior to planting.

    • Plant your "Double lily-of-the-valley" bare roots into temporary pots with a multipurpose compost in spring and grow-on in a sheltered spot outdoors.

    • Choose a pot which comfortably fits the bare roots. Some have a noticeable crown which should be just below the soil surface with any top growth exposed.

    • Plant out into borders or permanent containers in late spring or early summer once in full growth. Choose a position in sun or shade depending on the variety.
