Convallaria majalis var. manshurica, a perennial herb, occurs in grassland or high plains in mountainous regions, with two radical leaves. The leaves are long-oblong, 10-18cm in length, their backsides tinge powdery-white, and their bases are long sheaths. Flower stalks measure 20-35cm in height, which arise from axils and are shorter than the leaves, in other words, lower than the height of the leaves. Around 10 in number, flowers set themselves in inflorescences in a racemose way. The fragrant flowers are white, broad-bell-shaped, about 1cm across; tips are cleft in 6, and the lobes bend backward. Sap fruit matures red. Bloom time: April-June.
