Variegated White Lily of the Valley Plants
Be the envy of your gardening friends with these variegated white lily of the valley plants. These plants were brought to us from the garden of a famous Michigan hybridizer of hostas. They were given to him during a visit to Kew Gardens! We will dig these by hand from their beds, clean the roots and ship them bareroot to you ASAP. These plants naturalize well, reproducing by their rhizome/root system, not by their colorful seed pods. Growing instructions are included.
These have the same fantastic fragrance as regular white lily of the valley, but the leaves have striped variagation! The plants are about 25% larger than standard convallaria. This variety is Convallaria majalis var. Albostriata.

As best said by TheKnot.com:
With bell-shaped florets dangling from a thin stem, the lily of the valley is sometimes called “the ladder to heaven.” The fresh, perfumed scent from its tiny flowers is unmistakable. In Norse mythology, the flower is linked to Ostara, the goddess of springtime, and while most plentiful during this season, it remains available — and very expensive — most of the year. So while a fistful of lily of the valley blooms might be your dream, a more affordable alternative may be to use just a few stems to infuse a bouquet or centerpiece with its wonderful fragrance.
