|Oggetto: Easter Lily Mer Apr 06, 2011 9:46 pm|| |
The white lily has long been associated with Easter,
not only because its colour traditionally represents purity and joy.
Its petals flare out like the bell of a trumpet,
suggesting the Angel Gabriel's awakening horn.
And because it is a bulb it is "buried" and "reborn," thus making it
a perfect flower to symbolize the death and rebirth of Christ.
How to Grow Easter Lilies
Most people buy potted plants for Easter so let's begin with a blooming plant.
When selecting Easter Lilies, buy ones that are just beginning to open. The blooms will only last a few days, so selecting one about to open will allow you the maximum bloom time in your home.
After Easter when the blooms begin to fade and die off, plant the flower in your flower garden. It prefers somewhat rich soil, fairly well drained, and full sun. Easter Lilies will grow and bloom in your flower garden for years.
