Lilies or Lilium
Did You Know? White lilies means purity?
There are four main species used as cut flowers – all very popular as a few stems fill a vase. Lilies are decorative on their own or team with Magnolia foliage, fernery or spear grass – something to add another texture to the arrangement. Note: the burnt orange/brown coloured stamens are coated in pollen (quite decorative in their own right) which will stain clothing and hands. These can be removed by gently pulling the tips of the stamens using a disposable glove or tissue. Have a small plastic bag handy to drop into. If the pollen reaches your upholstery or clothing – do not use water – do not rub. Vacuum immediately.
