Their fresh, perfumelike scent is unmistakable, and it's hard to believe such a delicious fragrance can come from such tiny flowers. With its bell-shaped florets dangling from a thin stem, the lily of the valley is sometimes called "the ladder to heaven." In Norse mythology, the flower is linked to Ostara, the goddess of springtime, and while most plentiful during this season, it remains available -- and expensive -- year-round. Though most people only know of the white lily of the valley, a very rare rosy pink variety exists too.
