Lilies

Fragrant and beautiful


Lilies Have Been Around Since Time Immemorial Lilies are herbaceous flowering plants that grow from bulbs; most Lily species are native to the northern hemisphere and also stretches into the northern subtropical regions. Some lilies are edible, and feature prominently in many cultures and play an important part in literature in many parts of the world. Here are a couple of interesting facts about lilies:

  • Lilies are never blue.
  • Lilies date back for many centuries, and the earliest record of lilies being grown in domestic gardens, dates back to the year 1597.
  • Myth has it that the lily sprang up from the milk of Hera, therefore it is considered a plant of purity; the lily was compared to the rose of Aphrodite.
  • The Madonna lily was mentioned in the poems written by Homer. In Homer's poems roses and violets are also mentioned.
  • Lilies are grown from bulbs.
  • The botanical name of lilies is Lilium.
  • There are no fewer than 110 different varieties and species of lilies found across the globe such as the Arum lily and the tiger lily. 
  • Brides often choose lilies to add to their bridal bouquets, because lilies represents chastity and purity.
  • Lilies make stunning vase flowers; they offer a strong scent and fill a room with their wonderful fragrance.
  • Lily of the valley is indigenous to the woodland areas of Europe, North America and Asia.
  • The direction in which they grow distinguishes lilies from other flowers. They either face down, side-ways or upwards, smiling at the sun.
  • Lilies come in a variety of shades and patterns; they are yellow, orange, red, pink, white and lively combinations. Lilies are spotted or plain, splattered or marked with brush-like splashes of colour, and as mentioned before, they are never blue.
  • Lilies have different shapes; they are the Turk's Cap, Trumpet, Star, Flat and the Bowl shape.
  • Tiger lilies are proudly black and orange, hence their unusual name.
  • The heady and unmistakable scent of the St. Josephs Lily makes wonderful vase flowers.
Grow lilies in your garden for a spectacular show, or place bunches of aromatic lilies in vases right throughout your home or office space; make no mistake - lilies are the true flowers of the gods. Arum Lily Daisies
