Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips:Lily of the Valley grows best in woodland conditions: fertile, humus-rich, moist soil and partial to full shade. It will, however, grow in full sun in northern regions if the soil remains moist. Be careful when siting this plant--though it may take a while to get started, this plant will spread rapidly, forming a dense, weed-smothering groundcover. Lily of the Valley greatly benefits from an annual application of organic compost each fall.
