Lily of the Valley (Pink)

Convallaria majalis Rosea

Dainty pale pink flowers with flared tips. Height 10-20cm.

Lily of the Valley or "Fairy Bells" is an intrinsically English plant, which spreads to cover woodland floors. These perfumed hardy perennials have delicately arched, nodding heads of small, bell-shaped flowers May-June, followed by red berries shortly after.

Flowers have many layers of meaning people throughout history, which tie in with its time of flowering and religious associations. May's official flower is the lily of the valley and this association comes, in part, from the traditional lore that nightingales won't sing until the lily of the valley blooms each May. Their unique shape led them to be called "fairy bells" in Celtic cultures, and it was believed that only fairies could hear them ringing.

It is occasionally known as glovewort, due to its use in treating sore or chapped hands. It also makes a good natural dye, changing cloth to either yellow or green, depending on which season the leaves are gathered. It is considered a symbol of purity and humility, sweetness, and renewed happiness!
