Lilly Fun Facts!

orange lilyThe lily, a flower revered by several cultures throughout history, has been used for symbolic and medicinal purposes, according to the Flowers & Plants Association. While several varieties produce bright colors, the famous “Madonna Lily” only blooms white.

Cultivation History

People have cultivated the lily for at least three millennia. Ancient Chinese and Assyrians revered the flower. Until the 1500s, however, the Madonna Lily remained the only known variety of the plant outside of Asia.

Medicinal Uses

Chinese folk medicine included lilies in remedies to bring good luck. Europeans also have used lilies in medicinal preparations throughout history. Lilies seemed to have some effect against depression and ingestion of toxins.

Pet Toxicity

While lilies may add elegance to a garden, they contain compounds that act as a deadly poison on cats. Homeowners should prevent their cats from going near lilies at all times.
