|Plant Description|| ||SHADE.
Convallaria, or Lilly of the valley is truly in the 'Heritage' selection for this nursery. A wonderful, old world garden plant prized for it's long lasting waxy flowers & it's
The foliage comes first from well sized 'pips' just under the soil. In mid-late spring, the stems of beautiful flowers unfold, giving much pleasure.
The whole plant is only around 25cm high, & establishing a bed of 5-7 plants & leaving it undisturbed will give years of enjoyment.
Feed well as growth begins, then again after flowering.
Best in semi or dappled shade, & cool moist conditions, as it is a cold loving plant.
It also does well in large deep containers. I planted some in a deep tub with 1/4 roughage on the bottom for drainage,
then sunk it 1/2 way into the soil after putting an inch or so of stones under where the tub was going. With regular feeding I got 3 years before I finally broke it up. The clump in the garden went a bit beserk
& spread a bit too well, so the tub was the answer for me.
Unfortuntely, Convallaria are not suitable for warm climates. It will grow, but needs cold in winter for good flowering.
PB 3/4 containing1-2 pips for $5-00. ready for planting now.
Sorry, very few, so a limit of 2 per order.
