Lily of the Valley – Invasive?

Q: I got some Lily of the Valley plants from a coworker to fill in around my hosta. I’m reading online that they can be invasive. Any advice?

A: Growing in perfect conditions lily of the valley could be “pushy” but I don’t think you’ll have a problem. Invasiveness is typically a problem in the North. The white, fragrant flowers are beautiful in spring. Lily-of-the-valley prefers a cool, moist, shaded area. It does not like sunny spots that are hot or dry.
