This is pre- order for late April 2015. I live in Chicago, and Spring comes here really late. I will let you know when I will ship.

You will get 8 + live plants fully rooted and ready to plant.

People love this plant for its beauty and sweet fragrance. Also, it spreads around the ground very well and great for shade gardens. You will need to start with a few plants and year after year you will get more and more plants.

This plant is not medicinal, but poisonous. That is why I listed it in "supplies" section of my Etsy store. If you cut some flowers for your vase, make sure that you do not sleep next to it because it will give you headacke in the morning (keep your window open). But it is perfect for gardens:)

I will ship it right away via USPS mail on Mondays or Tuesdays.(I do not want them to be at the post-office during weekends). Open it right away and add water. Plants will be packed with wet paper towels and plastic, box will have holes for breathing:) If you live in the state which is close to Chicago, I will ship it right away (it ,might ,take 1 to 2 days only).

Tips for outdoor planting during the summer time: plant them in the evening after 6 p.m. when the sun is down. If your summer is super hot plant them in the pot temporarily (it is Not a good idea to replant in the heat! ). Every State/country has different weather. It is ideal to replant during the rain/rainy weather (plants have extra water and natural conditions to adjust).

* If you live in very hot USA state/country, You have to plant them in shade and by the trees (fallen leaves will help to preserve it/roots).

Soil: Average to high moisture
For other uses, see Lily of the Valley ,Convallaria majalis

Convallaria majalis is a popular garden plant, grown for its scented flowers and for its ground-covering abilities in shady locations."

WARNING:
Convallaria majalis commonly known as the lily-of-the-valley, is a poisonous woodland flowering plant native throughout the cool temperate Northern Hemisphere in Asia and Europe.
All parts of the plant are highly poisonous, including the red berries which may be attractive to children. If ingested—even in small amounts—the plant can cause abdominal pain, vomiting, and a reduced heart rate."

"Majalis is a herbaceous perennial plant that forms extensive colonies by spreading underground stems called rhizomes. New upright shoots are formed at the ends of stolons in summer,these upright dormant stems are often called pips. These grow in the spring into new leafy shoots that still remain connected to the other shoots under ground, often forming extensive colonies. The stems grow to 15–30 cm tall, with one or two leaves 10–25 cm long, flowering stems have two leaves and a raceme of 5–15 flowers on the stem apex. The flowers are white tepals (rarely pink), bell-shaped, 5–10 mm diameter, and sweetly scented; flowering is in late spring, in mild winters in the Northern Hemisphere it is in early March. The fruit is a small orange-red berry 5–7 mm diameter that contains a few large whitish to brownish colored seeds that dry to a clear translucent round bead 1–3 mm wide. Plants are self-sterile, and colonies consisting of a single clone do not set seed."

More information (PLANTING DIRECTIONS):

Lilies of the Valley don't actually have bulbs. They have a rhizome (which is like a long, thin, sideways-growing, carrot-like root). The rhizome has large buds, called pips, which produce new stalks and leaves.

Lilies of the Valley are easy to grow under most conditions, though they do best in partial shade. Once they are well rooted they will spread indefinitely by means of the underground rhizomes. They are an excellent ground cover that lasts until frost sets in. Once they are well extablished, they will form large clumps that need almost no care and live for many years.

Minimum planting depth: Plant pips 1" (2 -3 cm) below soil surface, water it.
For already potted plants, make sure soil around plant is well tamped down and plant is well watered.

Hardiness zones: Can survive in zones 2 - 9, but does best in zones 3 - 7
Alternate names: Latin name: Convallaria majalis
Notes: Good as a container plant, ground cover, cut flower, in borders, rock gardens, under trees or shrubs, or in a woodland garden
Tolerates both acid and alkaline soil, sun and shade, but prefers partial shade with moist, humus-rich soil
Warnings: All parts of the plant are poisonous
Where well adapted, plants can become invasive
