Description
Your grandmother loved it. And so does everyone today. Lily of the Valley is the super-hardy, highly scented early spring plant that makes a lovely green mat in any moist shady spot, spreading every year. The foliage is sort of like a solid green miniature Hosta, and you know the flowers. One of the great things about Lily of the Valley is the way the foliage stays rich and green all summer long.

This famous garden perennial is actually a native North American woodland wildflower. If you've never seen them before, don't be shocked by the tiny roots called pips. They're supposed to be that small, and are a snap to grow.

            Terribly disappointed in this purchase. Very few, tiny tiny pips in each bag. Clumps too small to separate. After careful soil preparation and planting, absolutely nothing has grown.

                  The failure of these was probably due more to the soil situation (very rocky) than anything else. Not one of them grew. :(

                    I love your plants, they are packed to perfection and the roots are so healthy. I planted 15 Lily of the Valley a few weeks ago and they are already 4" tall. Great slips! I soaked them in water while I was planting them. I don't expect them to bloom this year, but will look forward to seeing them next year. I just received 6 other plants and they are just as expected "perfect". I need to make a bed for them at the foot of a garden raised bed. But will get that done in a few days. Your plants are even better than what I have received from a nursery that is closer to my area! Great work!

                    Again, lots of green but no blooms. Maybe the dry weather contributed to that and hopefully next year.

                      I've always loved lily of the valley and had trouble in the past getting them to grow. Your pips are year #2 and coming up en masse and healthy. I'm hoping they will bloom. I love that they spread and have such delicate fragrant flowers to enhance any summer bouquet!!
