This is a most interesting flower because it is widely cherished, but not widely available. I have never had the pleasure of working with this particular blossom in the shop over my time here. Reason being that it is very expensive to purchase and many customers can not afford it. Another reason that I have found in the past is the suppliers do not like to offer it because it is a very temperamental and delicate flower. They do not travel well to the wholesaler because they are so delicate and the lifespan of the blossom is short. So many times by the time it travels to the wholesaler onto the retailer and then to the customer the blossoms are fading. So I was presently surprised when one of the Designers here had some growing in her yard a brought me in a handful freshly picked. Oh they smelled so good and were so pretty. I would say they lasted about 4-5 days in my vase. The vase life is generally 2-6 days so I did well. Lily Of The Valley are bulb plants which are not the longest lasting blossoms, but beautiful non the less. This experience inspired me to purchase some bulbs. When they come in they will require a shady spot and hopefully next year I will have started my own patch. Even an Old Dog like me can learn some new tricks. If you see a floral or foliage you find interesting, give it a try because you may find a new favorite!
