Lily of the Valley: A Field Guide
A favorite in sweetly scented bouquets (as far as we’re concerned, it stole the show from Kate Middleton at her royal wedding), Convallaria majalis is also strategically useful in the spring garden.
Lily of the valley grows to be only eight inches high, but it would be a shame to underestimate this delicately beaded white flower. It arrives in May with an entourage of shiny green leaves to provide coverage and distract the eye from the fading foliage of early-blooming bulbs.
