Lilies add graceful elegance and fragrance to any home or occasion, blooming from early summer all the way through fall, depending on the type.
True lilies have long, narrow leaves growing along the length of the stem and large, flamboyant flowers that are either single or in clusters. They grow from scaly bulbs. Many of the species are highly fragrant and typically range in height from 30cm − 120cm, although some can be much taller.
Lilies are among the oldest cultivated plants. In Asia Minor during the 2nd millennium BCE the bulb of the Madonna lily was cultivated for use in a medicinal ointment; the ancients raised the bulbs of this species for food. The Greeks and Romans grew it for ornamental and medicinal purposes.
Lilies have been cultivated for more than 3000 years. Christians held the lily as the symbol of purity and innocence. The Greeks associated the flower with birth and motherhood, whilst also making the lily a symbol of high eroticism and sexuality.
In France the lily is identified with Fleur-de-lys; with each passage symbolic of 1) royalty, 2) prosperity, and 3) expanse.

Our florists have prepared several care tips to give your fresh flowers an even longer vase life:
Upon receiving your flower delivery cut off the stems of the lilies at a steep angle and remove any leaves that may fall below the waterline;
- Make sure to change the water every day and do add a sachet of flower food on the first day and thereafter on the third day of receiving your lily flower arrangement.
- Keep your lilies away from sunlight and heat.
- To keep pollen from staining your clothes, do remember to take out the stamen as the lily opens. In case of stains, an effective way to remove pollen is to use sticky tape.
- Lily pollen is also poisonous to cats, so it is important to check your recipient does not own any before despatching your floral gift.

Different colours and types of lilies have different meanings in different cultures around the world. Generally, a lovely bouquet of lilies symbolises innocence, purity, devotion, and royalty. The flower's pure and innocent beauty is associated with ideas of new life and rebirth. Lilies are employed in Christian iconography to symbolise the Virgin Mary and are frequently pictured at Christ's Resurrection.
Lilies are a florist's favourite flower because of their captivating fragrance and lovely symbolism. They add beauty and grace to a bouquet. Because they come in a variety of colours, they are appropriate for a variety of events.
If properly cared for, cut lilies can last from 10 to 14 days. They begin to wilt and turn brown after 1-2 weeks.
When stored at room temperature, lilies can last anywhere from 2-3 days up to 10 days without water. It also depends on numerous aspects such as the freshness of the flowers when purchased and the conditions of the room in which they are stored.
If you follow proper care instructions, you can keep them fresh and alive for a long time. First, give them a fresh cut and carefully remove the cellophane wrapping and leaves as necessary. You don't want any foliage below the water line once you fill your vase. Then place them in a vase of fresh water, feed them and keep them out of direct sunlight. You should change the water regularly and remove the pollen.
White lilies represent purity. They are mostly used at weddings because they symbolise virginity and purity. The white lily is sometimes known as the Madonna lily and is often depicted in religious art as the symbol of the Virgin Mary.
After flowering, remove the faded flowers to encourage more flowers and avoid seed development. It is not necessary to remove the bulbs from the ground. They are hardy enough to stay in place during the winter. It is thus enough to cut the stems once they are dry. The lily replenishes its reserves to bloom again the following year.
Unlike many plants, they do not require pruning during their blooming season. Instead, prune them after they've finished blooming, which is usually after the first frost.
Lilies prefer full sun for their better growth. You should provide good moisturized soil in dry climates to keep the soil cooler. You should plant lilies in that area where they can get full sun or at least half day sun. In hot climates, they appreciate being shaded from the afternoon heat.
Lilies should get water about once a week. The plant will droop a bit when thirsty, telling you when it needs a drink. If you pay attention to when it usually starts to sag, you can plan to water one day before it generally happens. Watering about once a week and spritzing leaves with water throughout the summer will help keep your lily hydrated.
Lilies bloom from early summer all the way through fall. Their presence in the garden adds graceful elegance and fragrance. By carefully blending early, mid-season, and late varieties into your garden, you will enjoy their magnificent blooms from spring through the first frost.
You should water the plant freely, especially if rainfall is less than 1 inch per week during their active growth. Keep lilies mulched so that their roots are cool. You should also apply a high potassium liquid fertilizer every 2 weeks from planting until 6 weeks after flowering.
Different types of lilies last for different times. Usually, lilies last from 2 to 3 years. Asiatic lilies live longer from 5 to 6 years while Oriental lilies tend to be much shorter lived.
In winters, lilies should be in containers in a cool but frost-free, airy place with strong light, such as a well-ventilated cold greenhouse or frame. In southern England, many lilies will be fully hardy and can be left outside in larger containers year-round.
Most lilies require sunny to partially shady areas and well-drained soil, rich in organic matter. Fall is the best time to plant lilies outdoors, usually from September to early October, before the ground freezes. You should plant the lilies 6 to 8 inches deep.
