Monrovia introduced this little gem in 2014, and we’re absolutely smitten with the white flower sprays that arch from the tops of the ‘Brookside Miniature’ lily of the valley branches like tiny fountains.
Fragrant clusters of blooms appear in early spring atop bright green foliage that looks chartreuse when it emerges in spring.
Compact and slow growing, it’s perfect for rock and sun-dappled woodland gardens, as well as borders and mass plantings. Water regularly, especially in hot weather, to keep it looking its best.
