Lily of the Valley
Liljekonvalj is the Swedish name for these fairy-like, bell-shaped blooms. They are native to the eastern-central province of Gästrikland. The sweet smelling flowers are often found spread over a large area of a forest floor, since their root system grows to be quite extensive. The leaves are very large compared to the flowers, are grooved and non-glossy and the flowers grow on a stem in a spiked inflorescence formation. Five to 15 flowers may grow on one inflorescence. The bells are white and composed of six petals that curl up and out at the ends, giving the flowers the appearance of little bonnets.
