Lily Of The Valley


This hardy groundcover has a spice-scented creeping rhizome with fragrant white flowers in the late spring followed by scarlet berries. This plant was believed to treat gout and to "comfort the heart". The flowering tops and roots are used to regulate the heartbeat in the same way as the digitalis species, but is less toxic. Lily of the Valley is a potentially poisonous plant and should not be used without thorough research and guidance. Delicate beauty of a plant prefers the shady corners of the yard. Prefers shade Perennial Hardy to zone 4.
