Floral Media - Flower Agenda 2015 - Week 23 - 26 - Lily




Here is another instalment from The Flower Council of Holland's campaign about cut flowers called Flower Agenda and during the weeks 23 - 26 it's all about Lilies.



Here is a little bit of information and facts about Lilies:

  • Lilies grow wild in most parts of the world.
  • The lily is a flower with many symbolic meanings - femininity, love, purity and transience.
  • It comes in many different colours - white, pink, red, yellow, purple and orange - some also have stripes and spots.



  • The botanical/Latin name for lilies is Lilium.
  • Lilies are poisonous to cats if eaten.
  • Lilies can take several days to open.



  • Remove the anthers on the stamens - the part where the pollen is produced - to prevent staining of tablecloths and clothing.
  • Remove pollen stains by brushing gently or by using sticky tape.
  • Avoid water - it will only make things worse!



  • Lilies are available all year around.
  • They can last for up to two weeks.
  • The flowers bruise easily - so handle the flowers gently. 




Enjoy your flower arranging!


Have a Great Floral Monday!

I will see you later in the week with more Do-It-Yourself flowers from 'Of Spring and Summer'.

Lilies are beautiful and royal flowers!
But the first picture is really superb, all those beautiful whites together!
Have a nice day, Ingrid!

With love, Gerry

I've always stay away from lilies because they seem so fragile.
I do think that they are amazingly beautiful, they even have a tropical look to them:)
