Flowering Facts: Water Lily

water lilly pinkWater lilies come from both temperate and tropical areas of the world, they provide protection & shade for fish & a gentle resting spot for frogs & dragon flies.  Sometimes a water lily can bloom a beautiful flower that adds color to the water feature.  The water lily comes from the Nymphaeaceae plant family, which are commonly found in garden ponds and landscape water features. 

The plants structure consists of a large leaf or “pad” that floats on top of the water and is attatched to the soil at the bottom of the pond by a long stem.  Water lilies only live in fresh water that is shallow & still, around the edges of lakes or in small ponds with no current.

You can actually plant water lilies in pots and sink the pots into the pond, or plant the stem directly into the muddy soil at the bottom of the pond.

Caring for your Lilies

Oriental Lilies in Glass VaseThere are many types of lilies. From the more commonly available ones such as the Stargazer lilies, Casablanca lilies, and Madonna Lilies to the rarer imported ones such as the Peruvian lilies, Sumatra lilies, African Queen lilies, and Maywood lilies. Despite the vast varieties of lilies, the care for fresh cut lilies, such as those you get from your local florists is rather similar.

You’ll notice the pollen in the center of your lilies. These pollens, if not removed, will stain the lily petals, your table tops, hands, or clothing. Therefore, it is essential for you to remove all the stamens once the lily bud begins to bloom.

The best time to remove the stamens from the lily is when the lily bud is half-bloomed and the stamens are yet to be pollinated. You can easily pull off the stamens with your fingers. However, you would need a scissors to remove the pollinated stamens if the lily has fully bloomed, it will stain your fingers.

Some lilies can have more than one bud on each stem. The timing and blooming process for each bud in a stem varies. One flower may wither earlier before the other buds have bloomed. If this is the case, simply cut the wilted flower off and allow the other buds to bloom.

Be sure to always cut your fresh stems again UNDER WATER before placing them in your vase or container at home. This will help the roots of the stem drink water & not dry out before placing them in water.

Symbolism of Lilies

lily symbolismSymbolism

To the ancient Greeks, the lily stood for tenderness, while early Christians used the lily as a symbol of purity. Oddly, the famous “lily” portrayed in France’s “fleur de lys” heraldry, first adopted by the French court in 1179, actually depicts an iris.

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.
