Speirantha convallarioides (Ruscaceae)
(spy-RAN-tha con-va-lar-e-OYD-eez)
False Lily-of-the-Valley

This Chinese native is similar in appearance to the traditional Lily-of-the-Valley; long, glossy dark-green leaves spread slowly via rhizomes to form colonies in average-to-rich well-drained soil. In spring, small sprays of fragrant white flowers nestle in the foliage. A rare and beautiful evergreen groundcover for woodland gardens.
