LiliesLilies' (lilium's) large prominent flowers make them a dramatic addition to any bouquet and they are a common sight at both weddings and funerals, with their large petals and sweet fragrance making them ideal for larger displays.
Lilies belong to the perennial family and can grow as tall as 6ft high in the right conditions. While many people imagine snow white petals when they think of lilies, they actually come in a range of shades including yellows, oranges, pinks, reds and purples.As well as being beautiful to look at, lilies have often been associated with having magical qualities, while some Elizabethan medical texts recommended using them to treat fevers, wounds and arthritis.
Lilies are native to the Northern Hemisphere in Asia, Europe and North America and have been popular since ancient times.
Legend has it the lily was the flower of Hera, wife of the Greek god Zeus, who formed it from the milk of her breast. However, the Romans had a different story; claiming that Venus, the goddess of beauty was so jealous of the flower's loveliness that she altered its appearance, adding the huge pistils in its centre.
