Convallaria majalis Rosea Bulbs | 1 Top Size | Rosy Lily of the Valley
Rosy Lily of the Valley
Also called 'Rosy Lily of the Valley', Convallaria majalis presents arching racemes of dainty, bell-shaped flowers that release a beautifully sweet scent. It is hence understandable why this perennial is popular in perfumery, so it will certainly make a fitting addition to a sensory garden. The petals of each nodding bloom flair outwards, forming pretty definition, while the foliage of this plant is off a graceful, muted green colour. Come summer, small red berries will additionally emerge. Please note, this plant is highly toxic if ingested.

Advice on hot and droopy plants
If your plants are looking a little wilted right now, don’t worry! Plants like to be filled with water to keep their structure, and when it’s hot that water evaporates.
Just give them an off-schedule watering and they’ll be right as rain in no time! Be careful not to flood them - plants don’t like extremes.
It is best to make sure that you plant at the recommended distance and depth. If too deep, the bulb may rot and the shoots emerge late. If too shallow, the bulb may emerge unevenly and have spindly growth.
