They will spread about all of their own accord, probably helped by birds and mice eating the seeds and so spreading them.  I have them coming up in places where I know certainly that I did not plant them.  They can become very invasive if happy.

I've got lily of the valley and I just leave them to do their own thing. I agree that they can become invasive but I just try and remove them if they get too bad. I've had them for years and they have'nt been any trouble.

I agree that they are invasive and I can't mow the edge of my lawn !! but you can't beat that glorious perfume can you!!
