Description

Lily Of The Valley is a North American native perennial

Wild Lily Of The Valley - Maianthemum Canadense. A perennial flowering plant native to North American conifer forested regions. More specifically Canada, British Columbia, and mainly northern regions of the United States although It has also been discovered along the Appalachian Mountain chain as far south as Georgia. It flourishes under deciduous and evergreen trees alike.


Lily of the Valley grows anywhere between ten and twenty-five centimeters tall

Each plant produces one to three leaves which are oval in shape, stalkless, and notched at the base, contouring around the plant's stalk in a semi-circular fashion. In late spring to summer the plant produces clusters of star-shaped flowers, white which sprout above the leaves at the apex of the plant. The flowers, of which there are approximately twelve to twenty per cluster, can be further described as having four tepals (A term used for the outer part of the flower when sepals and petals cannot be differentiated.) Four stamens are also present.

Lily Of The Valley fruit holds within one or two seeds

The fruit itself is a small red berry which when discovered in late spring to early summer is mottled red and when ripened by mid to late summer are a darker red and by some reports more translucent in appearance. The berries are used as food for various birds and rodents whose habitat is the forested regions in which these plants grow. Interestingly, while not used for human sustenance, the fruit of this plant has medicinal properties and has even been used in the treatment of tuberculosis.
Most of the Plants found in one location are what is known as vegetative clones which means they multiply via budding instead of through a seed. Plants with a single leaf have no fruiting structure with which to produce fruit and therefore seeds.
This particular plant has many monikers. It is also known as the Canadian Mayflower, as well as the Canadian May Lily. It is ironically known as both the False Lily Of The Valley and the more elegant label the Two Leaved Solomonseal.
