Convallaria produces racemes of fragrant bell shaped flowers in either white or pale pink. They may be grown in sun or shade and can be used as a ground cover. Convallaria likes a rich, moist soil. A planting benefits from an October topdressing consisting of compost, leaf mold or well rotted manure plus a complete fertilizer. Once the plants are established, leave them alone until they begin to deteriorate from overcrowding. The plant may become invasive and difficult to get rid of.
Propagation is by rhizome division in late September or October, or in early spring. Pips are large buds on the end of the rhizomes and their tips should be one inch below the soil surface.
