LILY OF THE VALLEY Convallaria majalis
A classic woodland garden perennial with many small pure-white bells that emit and extremely beautiful fragrance! A favorite for cut flowers in the home, and in bridal bouquets. Foliage is thick, lush and forms carpets of green. These plants look dainty, but are extremely tough, easy to grow, and are tolerant of drought, and even acidic soil under evergreen! Plants can take a considerable amount of sun, though traditionally grown in d areas. An elegant filler for tough spots.
These seeds are in very limited supply!

Germination: These seeds have fairly reliable germination. As with many perennials, these seeds require a period of moist cold to help them break dormancy. This is done by giving them a cold 'winter' period (artificial or natural), and then a warming to simulate 'spring', and time to grow! Here's how this can be done:
Obtain a planting container that has holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Place the seeds just under the surface of your growing medium, and water. Place your container in a cool area (but not freezing) for 4-5 weeks. Once the cool period is completed, place the container at room temperature for them to germinate. Be sure to keep the soil moist during this entire germination period. Seedlings will sprout a few weeks, or occasionally several months, after the warming period.
