The lily of the valley is fitting as the Birth Month Flower for May as its scientific name, convallaria majalis, roughly translates to “valley plant belonging to May.” Known for their sweet fragrance and bell-shaped white flowers, lily of the valley blossoms are a symbol of happiness, humility, purity, and sweetness.
Native to Europe and Asia, lily of the valley is not actually a true lily, but rather a member of the asparagus family. This abundantly blooming May flower is most commonly associated with romance, and was once traditionally presented in bouquets by French gentlemen to their significant others to express affection.
Gift the lily of the valley to celebrate May birthdays, and to loved ones as an expression of your love and affection. This bloom is a popular favorite with brides, and also signifies the beautiful nature of motherhood.
