Lily of the Valley Groundcover Pips | Convallaria Majalis 1-Year Pips
Along with oriental lilies and tuberose, Lily of the Valley ranks at the top of the list of plants that produce fabulously fragrant flowers. Each Lily of the Valley bulb, or "pip", as they are called, produces a single sturdy 8"-9" stem decorated with a line of up to a dozen tiny scalloped bell-shaped blooms. At the base of this flower stem is a pair of fresh green leaves. The effect is simple, but group several dozen of these delightful darlings in a shaded groundcover patch and come spring, their sweet uplifting aroma will prompt you to stop, close your eyes and inhale deeply. Simply heavenly. These spread gently to form a fragrant groundcover and may be used for mini bouquets in years to come.
NOTE - These are 1-year old pips at a reduced price. About 22% of these 1-year old convallaria pips will bloom the first spring, unlike the 2-year old flowering pips we sell. Use these pips as an economical way to begin a mass planting to enjoy for years. If you want a lily of the valley bouquet this spring, please select the 2-year old pips we offer here.
