Scientific Name: Convallaria majalis
English Name: Lily-of-the-Valley
Swedish Name: Liljekonvalj
The only species of its genus, this plant is poisonous and widely distributed over the Northern Hemisphere. By using rhizomes (stems that are underground, much like wild strawberries have) large numbers of Lilies-of-the-valley can be found in a small area. The flowers are usually white, but a rarer pink variant can also be found.
Interestingly, there’s a phenomenon called the Lily of the Valley Phenomenon. Apparently, the scent of this plant attracts mammal sperm in an intense fashion. No similar odour has been found for female reproductive organs.
