Lily of the valley (Convallaria majalis) is not a true lily; it's actually part of the asparagus family, though its foliage is reminiscent of some lilies. The plant typically has medium green leaves that arch about 5 to 10 inches long and 1 to 3 inches wide from the center of a clump. And it sports petite, fragrant, white flowers in the spring on long stems that rise from the leaf clumps. Orange-red berries appear later in the fall. Don't let the delicate appearance of lily of the valley flowers fool you. This is a hardy ground cover that grows and spreads quickly. It is best planted in the fall. (Source: The Spruce)
