Lily of the valley has sweet scented, pure-white bell like flowers. It is happy in part shade or sun, so ideal in a woodland setting , where the pretty flowers appear in early Summer.  Following the flowers, the fruit is a small orange-red berry. It will create good ground cover as it spreads gradually by rhizomes. However all parts of the plant are poisonous if ingested.
Other features:
The second part of the Latin name, refers to the fact that it flowers in May ( although usually later in the UK ) It is the birth flower of the month of May and in Cornwall is worn on Flora day. The flowers are a popular choice for Spring wedding bouquets.
Wildlife attracted:
Lily of the valley is used as a food plant by the larvae of some moth and butterfly species including the grey chi. Also a great food source for leaf beetles.
