What are Lilies?
The term “lily” can be applied to a wide number of flowering plants in the Lilium genus. These flowers come in all shapes and sizes (and scents!), but all share common properties in that they are grown from perennial bulbs and boast large, prominent flowers. These flowers hold a timeless part in human history, spanning cultures, art, and gardens around the world.
Lilies hold a particularly special place in Chinese culture, where they are traditionally given to newlyweds as a symbol of 100 years of happy marriage and the birth of sons. Lily of the Valley, a type of lily with delicate bell-shaped flowers, has inspired poetry, legends, and festivals, often symbolizing love, tenderness, and innocence.
