Our Lillies of the Valley have grown well for many years on the north side of the base of a huge Southern Red Oak (4.5 ft diam).  Never watered or fertiized, standard red clay.  In a wet summer they stray around to the east and west sides of the tree, but in a typical dry summer they retreat to a large triangular patch on the north side.  They bloom well every Spring.

>I have tried to grow lillies of the valley several times and they never took off.  They are in light shade and the soil has been fertilized with horse manure but it started out as forrest soil under trees.  Any suggestions as to how to get them to grow?  jerry in southern indiana
