That looks like Lily of the valley. How tall is it?

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. :-)

Looks like Lily of the Valley to me, too.

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)
