Stargazer Lilies

Stargazer Lilies

Stargazer Lilies are truly the celebrity of the Liliaceae family. Their bold, striking appearance makes it almost surprising that the Stargazer Lily is known by many gardeners as a one of the most resilient and reliable flowers on the market. The folklore surrounding Lilies goes back to ancient times, and, like many flowers, is laden with symbolism. The Stargazer Lily is not only found in bright white. Its bountiful glory is actually most often recognizable in its bright pink form, though its bright white forms hold the most history. The Lily, especially the bright white Stargazer Lily, is said to symbolize the Virgin Mary herself, while it’s said that first Lilies sprang from Eve’s tears upon being expelled from Eden upon learning she was pregnant. The appreciation of Lilies is not only attributed to biblical times. Lilies go back thousands of years, and have even been seen painted on cave and ruin walls by ancient civilizations.

The bold statement the Stargazer Lily makes is one of the reasons it is one of the most popular flowers chosen for weddings. Symbolizing purity and virginity, this is the traditional flower used to represent the bride, and makes for a fabulous display atop any wedding cake, or as a beautiful center for a corsage or boutonniere. Usually found in the early summer to early fall, the Stargazer Lily’s shape mimics the beautiful blossoming fireworks on the fourth of July, making it a perfect decoration for summer’s many themed celebrations. The spiritual undertones of the Stargazer Lilies also make it the perfect flower to send the parents of a child who is being baptized. Another fantastic occasion for the Stargazer Lily is Easter. This is the perfect time to bring your host a beautiful bouquet of Stargazer Lilies, or you can use an arrangement as a centerpiece for your own Easter brunch.
