Variegation adds a whole new dimension to Lily of the Valley! Along with a spring display of dainty, luxuriantly scented white bells, the foliage of Convallaria majalis 'Albostriata' is delicately striped in a creamy white that lightens shady gardens all season.
The genus Convallaria contains a single but well-loved species, C. majalis, which is among the most useful ground covers for shade. These charming and richly fragrant plants have many bell-shaped flowers in late spring. In the garden, they spread diligently and will prosper in low light. Culture is the same as that used for all woodland plants -- a woodsy soil (one rich in humus) and a location in shade or well-filtered sunlight.
