Unlike most other flowers, the perennial Lily never truly goes dormant. The strength and beauty of this international flower have cemented its place in the cultures of the world. All lilies emerge from a humble bulb and they’re one of the few showy flowering plants that can handle indoor life just as well as outdoor growing. Most named varieties of this flower are hybrids which won’t grow true from seed, but old-fashioned and heirloom lilies produce true seed you can share with loved ones and friends to spread the beauty around.
The Lily flower, in all it’s various forms is commonly considered to mean: Royalty and regal bearing, motherhood and fertility, purity and the beauty of youth, passion and drive, renewal and rebirth. Lilium is a Latin term and derives from the Greek word leirion, a word that traces back through numerous civilizations as one of the first words for the flower.

The striped pink flower known as the Stargazer Lily is one of the most popular flowers for bouquets today, and it means ambition and encouragement with a difficult challenge. Yellow and gold lilies most commonly symbolize good health and healing, while bright red blooms speak of passion and work great for weddings and proposal bouquets.
