I planted a bunch of lily-of-the-valley last year, but the starts were in such horrible condition when they arrived I couldn't tell what was dirt and what was start. Of course, nothing came up.
: ( You've done much better : )

The various reds in the other photos are wonderful.


These are native lily of the valley - I didn't plant them. They try to take over the world and I mow the ones that try to get out in the lawn from the woods.

Another patch sprung up at the west end of the shrub garden. It started with 1 plant a couple of years ago and now I'm mowing the escapees there too. Maybe I should try sending you some, if you want.

I would take them, thank you. I don't need a lot - just a few that will do their thing and multiply. I don't recall having a problem getting the lilies-of-the-valley started along the bank on sunrise, but anymore I would swear that the nurseries just send out sealed plastic bags of dirt and call the contents "lily-of-the-valley". If you send them when they start to settle back this fall, it should be just in time for me to plant them, here, don't you think? Looking forward to it.

I am trying to start the plants next to the foundation. It should take a year or two for them to try to escape into the lawn - lol.


You are correct, fall would probably be best because of your hot weather. If I was sharing with someone in my area, I would say just about any time would be okay as long as they are kept watered.

Don't let me forget later in the year!

I would put it on my calendar, but I pretty much ignore both calendars and the one on my computer doesn't sync to the one on my iPhone. Well...it probably would if I would use the cloud, but I don't like having my stuff on someone else's server. I'll put in on my phone and cross my fingers.

Thanks for the offer!
