Lily of the valley detail.png

Lilies of the valley are wieldable flowers with damage equivalent to that of a bronze dagger, though with lower accuracy. They have been part of the Start of May events which have occurred nearly every year since 28 April 2009. They can be obtained by picking lilies of the valley.

The lilies may be smelled when wielded or when present in players' inventories. This performs a unique animation.

They can be given to another player by using the lilies on them, provided that that player has accept aid on for the miscellaneous category, doesn't already have one, and has space in their backpack.

They can be placed on other players' gravestones, causing the player to place the item on the ground and losing it. They can't be placed on one's own grave.

Despite its examine message, the lilies as items haven't been removed since the Start of May event in 2021.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The part of the examine text that says 'It will vanish with the next update' means the flower is one of the few items that breaks the fourth wall. Other such items are the Oktoberfest Pretzel, Easter Carrot, Hati Paws, and the Golden hammer.
  • The item is a reference to Lily of the Valley day, a French holiday on 1 May where people give the lilies to their friends and families.
  • Before a hidden update on 8 May 2018, lilies of the valley could be disassembled.
  • Before the lilies' reappearance in 2019, they could not be used with a keepsake key.
  • Lilies are one of the few items that can be given to ironman accounts by other players. Others include gnomeballs and bonds.
