Lily of theValley

I did a google search on "most expensive flower plants" and to the list I found "Lily of the Valley". They have become rather popular for use as a spring wedding bouquet. Mine is the bush type. Plant in the spring in a filtered shade location (mine's still pot-bound). It prefers a loose, well drained acid soil that is kept moist but not wet. No pruning is needed, but cut off the old flowers before they go to seed, unless you would like it to spread. Keep in mind it spreads aggressively.
