Lily of the Valley

Convallaria majalis    photo: K1

These are beautiful plants.  The flowers are charming.  They smell fabulous.   The foliage is extremely decorative and looks great all year.

They are also extremely poisonous.   Put some in a vase, and the water becomes poisonous enough to kill you.   If you put other plants in that water, you'll kill them, too.    Don't turn your back on these babies.

Cool, huh.


  1. I love Lily of the Valley!
    And now I'm scared of it.

  2. They are one of my favorites, I knew they were poisonous, but didn't realize the water they were put in would absorb the poison.
