Answer

Lily-of-the-valley is often difficult to control in the home landscape.  These beautiful but fast-spreading plants can be destroyed by repeated digging and removal of their underground stems, or rhizomes.  Thoroughness is crucial, because any pieces of rhizome that are left will sprout and develop into new plants.  It often takes two or three persistent attempts to completely destroy lily-of-the-valley by digging.
