Lily of the Valley | Convallaria majalis | 10.5cm Pot
Add a decorative charm to your springtime garden, followed by red berries come summer...
Also called 'Lily of the Valley', Convallaria majalis presents arching racemens 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. These qualities, paired with its easy to grow nature, has earned this perennial the 'Award of Garden Merit'; an award that helps gardeners make the most informed gardening decisions. Please note, this plant is highly toxic if ingested.

Our herbaceous plants are lovingly grown by our trusted nursery, based in England. Each flourishing plant will be dispatched directly to your home.
Please note, your potted plant may not display flowers as soon as it arrives. However, the 'flowering period' box (detailed above), indicates when you can expect flowers to form. Many of our herbaceous perennials also die back in winter, so will have little growth in spring, but grow quickly once sunlight hours improve.
Sustainability is one of our priorities, and as such, our perennials and alpines are delivered in environmentally friendly packaging. Aside from being recyclable, they will keep them nice and secure on their journey.
Please note: where your plant is supplied with a pot, your plant's 'Height on Arrival' includes the pot
Please see our below guidance on your perennial or alpine's care:
Watering: During your perennial or alpine's first growing season, you should provide them with frequent waterings. Try to also avoid wetting the foliage to reduce the risk of disease.
Deadheading: To promote a long flowering period, you should deadhead any flowers that appear spent. Simply rescind each flower at their base, taking care to not cut other parts of the plant.
Dividing: To really flourish, your perennials can be divided every three to four years. They can be divided when they begin to show less flowers, or appear less healthy in the middle. Make sure to only do so when they aren't currently flowering.
Please note: Herbaceous perennials can die back in winter, so don't be alarmed if this happens and instead look forward to spring!
