Lily Flowers and Plants

General Information on Lillies and Lily Plants

Different types of Lilium develop from different nations. For example, varieties like the Lilium monadelphous and Lilium pyrenae cum develop from Europe such as Turkey and Italy respectively, while the same of Lilium auratum and Lilium lancifolium originate from Japan.

The genus Lilium is one of the close relatives members of vegetation known as Liliaceae. Real lilies are part of this genus and, despite their titles, some varieties such as the peace lily or Day lily are real lilies, despite the ‘lily’ part of their names.

True lilies have long, narrow leaves flourishing along the size of the branch and large, elaborate blossoms that are either single or in groups. They develop from flaky bulbs. Many of the varieties are extremely fresh and generally range high from 30cm to 120cm, although some can be much higher.

Known to man for centuries, the bulb of the Madonna lily (Lilium candidum) was once harvested to create a therapeutic treatment and was well-known with the Greeks and Romans, for both its therapeutic qualities and its attractive elegance.

The name lily comes from the Ancient term ‘leiron’ which known as the white-colored Madonna lily that is considered to have started out of the dairy of the goddess Hera.

Lilies at this moment are given as a 30th wedding anniversary gift.

 

Care and Handling for Lily Flowers and Lily Plants

Fertilise your lilies: When they first force up branches, add a little well-balanced manure. Lilies are pretty sturdy, and will not require a lot of manure. In fact, too much nitrogen can lead to poor branches, and in hot, wet environments can also lead to lamp rot. For maximum results, decide on a manure that helps in potato growing.

Water your lilies: Lilies generally don't need a lot of water, so only normal water if required.

Asiatic lilies, Trumpets, and Orienpets grow in hot, dry climates, as long as they have exact standard water up to flowering time.

Protect lilies from freezing: During wintertime season, cover the lily bed with hay or time-tested boughs to secure the lights
