These gorgeous Mother’s Day Lilies are the perfect symbol for expressing your love on Mother’s Day. Associated with the Virgin Mary, oriental lilies are also a symbol of purity and rebirth.
Lilies are a classic flower to gift and with so many different colour meanings and symbols, there is a lily for every occasion or that special someone.
What does the name ‘Lily’ mean?
The lily name meaning comes from the Old English lilie, from Latin lilium and from Greek leirion. Originally, we took lily from the Hebrew word “Shoshannah” (שׁוֹשַׁנָּה), which was borrowed from the Egyptians.
This name became popular in almost every culture across the world. Lily is now a hugely popular girl’s name, and names like Susanna, Susan, Suzette all mean lily too!
Oriental lilies are the classic “late bloomer.” These stunning flowering bulbs bloom after Asiatic lilies, continuing the lily parade in the landscape well into the season. Growing oriental lily plants is fairly easy provided you have a well prepared site for bulbs, plenty of sun and good drainage. Some of the most magnificent flowers in the lily family are in this large group of species and cultivars.
Asiatic and Oriental are two of the most popular forms of true lilies available. Asian lilies bloom in June to July while Oriental bulbs start to appear in August. Both are quite easy to grow with thick, rigid stems, strappy leaves and showy flowers. Oriental lily cultivars, however, tend to have larger flowers. Orientals also thrive in cooler regions and can tolerate less than ideal soil conditions.
