Q.Planting Lily Of The Valley

Zone J4Y 1P4 | Anonymous added on January 26, 2021 | Answered

Hi! I live in a zone 5 and have a part of my garden that is more moist and in the shade. I found out that Lily of the Valley likes these conditions. In your article about this plant, it says it is ideal to plant in the fall but what happens if I plant it this spring? Less blooms? Thanks!!

It may not be quite as prolific, but if you plant your Lily of the Valley in the very early part of spring, or even now, it should be fine. It needs a chance to become cold and dormant before it can thrive in the warmer weather. Since you've already read the GKH article on when to plant, I'm sending you a link on understanding dormancy that you might enjoy: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/info/plant-dormancy.htm
