See here in this article you can see CONVALLARIA MAJALIS also known as  Liliaceae LILY of the Valley here I have described propagation method , plant care and its potted plant pictures. 

This familiar plant, with delicate, highly fragrant bell-shaped flowers, is usually seen as a hardy specimen in woodland areas or in a shady spot in the garden. It grows from a creeping rhizome and so spreads quickly.

Convallarias are also easy to force and can be obtained as pot plants or as crowns at almost any time of year. 

The elliptical leaves grow from the rootstock, usually in pairs, and can be 8in/20cm long. Each flower stalk carries five to eight blooms.
