May Lily

May Lily (aka False Lily-of-the-valley), Maianthemum dilatatum, is another spring lily we discovered on 20 May 2020 at the McLane Creek Nature Trail. Growing from mats of rhizomes, they form small patches. According to the LBJ Wildflower Center, gardeners should be cautious. This plant is extremely aggressive and can escape the garden. It will grow in nutrient poor soil. This species is found from Alaska along the West Coast to California and Idaho.
