Lilly of the Valley?

ikea_gwOctober 16, 2008

I found some dried up gray leaves in my backyard (just bought the house so I don't know what I have yet) and I wonder if this is lilly of the valley that has gone dormant after the bloom. The leaves are the right shape and there are maybe 4 or 5 of them on gray stems (6 inches) fanned out, laying on the ground. Any ideas? Thanks.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Lily of the Valley, Convallaria majalis (introduced species)and C. montana (native species), usually have only 2 or 3 leaves. See sketch on link below.
