Convallaria majalis, commonly known as the Lily of the Valley, is a poisonous flowering plant found in New Mexico. It was frequently shown in Season 4 of Breaking Bad.

History

When Walter White was contemplating how he was going to topple drug kingpin Gustavo Fring, he noticed the potted lilies in his backyard. ("End Times")

Brock Cantillo was poisoned by Walt in an unknown way with the Lily of the Valley berry.The doctors initially thought Brock was poisoned by ricin as Jesse Pinkman had suggested but later discovered the true toxin. The doctors and Jesse believed that Brock came across the flower growing naturally and ate some poisonous berries. ("Face Off")

After returning home from successfully getting Hector Salamanca to kill Gus and getting Jesse back on his side, Walt disposed of the Lily plant from his backyard. ("Live Free or Die")
