CONVALLARIA MAJALIS VARIEGATED
The beautiful, sweetly-perfumed lily-of-the-valley needs little description. But the variegated-leafed form is absolutely magnificent. The bright green leaves are deeply slashed and striped with cream, making them even lovelier. Plants take years before they are old enough to set good seeds and then only very few are ever produced and seedlings will give a variable proportion of variegation. Some occasionally may come up completely green, but you will be able to select the best forms to propagate from.
Sow seeds at any time, covering them very thinly with compost or grit, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed pot in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
