Easter Lily

Easter lily is a flower’s that has become a sign of Easter. The Easter lily is a tall plant with long, pointed leaves. The large, fragrant trumpet-shaped flowers are a waxy white color.

Easter lilies grow throughout the world. American florists formerly grew the Madonna lily of southern Europe. Its periods of blooming, however, are not regular.

The Easter lily has long, pointed leaves and large, white blossoms. It is often used as a decoration at Easter.

New kinds of Easter lilies have been brought to America from China, Japan, and Bermuda. The Bermuda Easter lily blooms early. The Chinese and Japanese lilies are the hardiest flowers. These lilies bloom outdoors in June or July. Florists can force Chinese and Japanese lilies to bloom just before Easter by growing them in greenhouses.
