Red one     Green one
Lily of the Valley
Lily of the Valley flowers
Convallaria majalis

A slow but aggressive spreader, Lily of the Valley will tolerate dry conditions but after blooming the foliage will die back. Constant moisture will keep the plants green throughout the growing season. They prefer shade and will grow in most soil types. Fragrant bell shaped flowers are followed by glossy red berries.
