Wildflowers of New York

Maianthemum canadense

A photographic collection and brief reference to help identify Wildflowers found in New York

Canada Mayflower
- Maianthemum canadense

Lily Family

Wild Lily of the Valley
The plant has only two leaves, occasionally a third, all of which clasp the stem. The flowers are nothing to write home about (until I get a good Photo) but the berries are another story. Starting out green they go through a progressively mottled stage before turning completely red. Without the berries the plant wouldn't have much going for it to cause attraction.

Found: Woodland habitat
Height: 3 - 6 inch
May - July bloom time
