Wild Lily of the Valley

By Joline
Also called wild lily of the valley and Snake berry. It is often confused with the Canada Mayflower which is similar, but larger. This little plant forms large colonies on the forest floor and is a very hardy plant, withstanding drought, poor soil and most anything nature throws at it. This is one that has colonized next to the foundation of my cottage, growing in gravel.

Lilies of the valley have arrived unannounced in my garden this year. I guess they have come from the wild.
