Convallaria

WGC Convallaria Information

Convallaria
Lily-of-the-Valley

Planting:

Plant 6 inches apart, covering the “pips” or crowns to a depth of 1-inch and setting them firmly in the soil. A moist soil, but not a heavy clay or one with standing water, is ideal. Best results are obtained in partial to nearly full shade, but Convallaria will succeed in sun, as long as provided adequate moisture.


Maintenance:

Annual top dressings of rotted manure, compost or leaf mold, applied in the fall, will make for more vigorous growth and heavier flower production. Can be transplanted by lifting square sods containing a number of plants, or divided singly, primarily to establish new beds.


Zones:

Zones 3-7
