Lily of the Valley is an excellent choice as a low-growing, spreading perennial groundcover in a shady, woodland-themed location. Fragrant, dainty, bell-shaped flowers bloom in early spring. Be aware that all plant parts are poisonous. Plantings spread by rhizomes, so it tends to be invasive. Selection shown in photos is 'Albostriata'. Canopy coverage: 7 square feet.
