Lily of the Valley – Part 7
Yep, it’s been a while. Sick of this yet? I am and I’m not. The plants are at a point of non-interestingness. At least that’s what I thought. You see I had no idea they actually make fruit. I knew they propagated themselves by the rhizome system, but didn’t think too much about this. Turns out that colonies consisting of a single clone don’t set fruit which contain seeds as pretty much all fruit does. Eventually these little green berries turn an orangey-red. I really hope they hang on to do so; a few have already disappeared. Anyway, here are the images –
Stems without berries far outnumber the ones with and those are withered and dry now.
So that’s how things are in the Lily of the Valley patch. I’ll be watching for ripening berries & withering leaves.
