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'.
