This flower (botanical name – Convallaria majalis) is considered native in Europe and Asia although there is some question about its native status in eastern North America. It flowers in late spring – no earlier than early March and then only after a mild winter. It is a herbaceous perennial and spreads underground stems (rhizomes) – it can spread over a large area. For this reason it may be considered a weed. All parts of the plant are poisonous. For more information please refer to Wikipedia.
