Design Ideas: Ideally suited for acidic soils beneath groves of both evergreen and deciduous canopy trees. Naturalizes well in organic soils and spreads to create colonies or masses of groundcover that produce fragrant cutting flowers. Spot into beds and borders influenced by shade of tall buildings or nearby trees. Perfect for protected foundatin planting to add early spring interest. Small stature is perfect for small urban gardens where the bell shaped flowers can be enjoyed close up.

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. As a groundcover, space plants 2 ft. to 3 ft. apart, (closer for faster coverage). Control weeds with mulch until the plants cover the area.

History

Lily of the Valley is sold in the streets of France each year on May 1st, a tradition that sprang from the belief that the flowers are "Mary's tears", springing up as each was shed at the foot of the cross.
