i have this plant next to a tree in the woods. on the north side of the tree. i transplanted some to another location to see if it will blossom. any idea what it might be?
SOLVED: plant from edge of woods
that is what i was thinking too poppysue, it is about 8 or 9 inches tall. but why wouldn't it flower? my other lily of the valley is blossoming now. i'm going to go check the texture of the leaves right now. :)
I don't know much about LOVs, but maybe it didn't flower because it was moved recently? I'll bet it will later. :-)
the funny thing is, that it has never blossomed in its original location either and it has been there for years, that is why i questioned weather it was a LOV. well hopefully time will tell. :) thank folks.
I had a LOV on a roof terrace, planted under a small sycamore tree and it didn't flower for about 5 years. Quite suddenly it was blooming and has bloomed the last few years. I didn't move it; it just decided the time was right.
does it smell like onion or garlic? I have some wild leeks in my wild garden that look like that!
Looks like a Convallaria to me too. Some places here are full of it and it is just starting to flower..

I have the same difficulty with my LOTV not flowering. I have found that when it is massivly crowded it flowers better, but then of course, you can't find the flowers! (sigh)
