The root system of the lily of the valley is locusty, with elongated internodes. Scaly leaves are located in the rhizome knots, and new roots develop from their axillary buds.

For the most part, the lower leaves are hidden in the ground. Also from the top of the rhizome grow 2 (sometimes 3) root leaves with an oval-lanceolate or oblong-elliptic shape.
