PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Height 6-8in/15-20cm
Light preference Part or full shade

Sowing time/depth ,
False Lily-of-the-Valley has beautiful, heart-shaped, mid-green leaves, which are shiny and textured with deep veins. Slender spikes bearing waxy, creamy-white blooms appear in Spring and early Summer, followed by green berries, which later turn translucent red. Prefers shade and nitrogen-rich soil, making this a good plant for underplanting in woodland areas. Also a good container plant if it is kept moist and provided with adequate shade. Although not quite as enthusiastic as our familiar ('true') Lily-of-the-Valley, Maianthemum dilatatum can be invasive, but with careful siting it should be relatively trouble-free.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
A simple plant to care for so long as it receives enough moisture and shade. Fork out unwanted growth to keep in check and avoid letting it grow through other plants, making removal difficult.
