Lily of the Valley is a deciduous perennial that survives the Winder as undeground rhizomes. In the spring, the plant produces shoots, each with one or two leaves and a raceme of delicate white bell shapped flowers. The flowers are highly perfumed. This understorey plant is an excellent ground cover for shady areas, but can be a little invasive.
