(Convallaria majolis L.)

35. Lily of the Valley

The sweetly-scented lily the valley is popular in gardens but not very common as a wild plant. It occurs in certain dry woods and on limestone hillsides, sometimes covering large patches of ground. It has a creeping rootstock from which arise the broad smooth leaves, in pairs. The white bell-shaped flowers are found in May and June. The fruit is in the form of a red berry, which ripens in the autumn.
