A rarely seen form of lily-of-the-valley, with pale pink flowers it is an excellent choice for a woodland garden or the front of an unstructured border where it will spread to form a naturalised carpet. The flowers have a delicious scent so plant them next to an entrance or path. Alternatively they make excellent cut flowers so they can be used to fill your home with their perfume. They will thrive in full sun or partial shade provided there is adequate moisture but their seeds may cause a mild stomach upset if ingested.

  • Garden care: Plant rhizomes 5-8cm deep and 20cm apart. Divide and replant congested colonies in September applying a generous mulch of composted leaf mould around the base of the plant.
