Description


Larger than the traditional varieties of Convallaria, majalis Bordeaux produces up to 15 large, highly scented, bell-shaped flowers per arched stem, nodding in the late spring breeze above the green, fluted foliage and quickly naturalise, forming clumps and filling your garden with fragrance. Tiny orange berries follow. In the language of flowers, Lily of the Valley signifies the return of happiness. Once used as a liquor and smeared on the forehead to improve one's common sense, it is also said to improve the memory. It is worn on 8 May each year, in Helston, Cornwall, to welcome the summer and it has become tradition in France to sell Lily of the Valley on international labour day, 1 May. A favourite amongst florists, Convallaria make excellent cut flowers for bouquets or for your home so you can enjoy the scent indoors too. They are rabbit and deer resistant, easy to grow and trouble-free creating clumps of weed-suppressing groundcover in both borders and containers. Not fussy on soil conditions, although they prefer to be grown in moist soil in full or part shade. Growing to a mature height of approximately 25-30cm, they spread to approximately 20cm and despite their dainty appearance, thrive outside for years with no winter protection, forming underground stems or rhizomes.
