Originating from the Chinese Middle Ages, Lilies have been cultivated for more than 3,000 years. The plant flowers until late autumn and there are three types; red, yellow and purple. It is available all year round and has found a place in the hearts of people throughout the United Kingdom. Historically Lilies were used to prepare remedies in popular medicine.
In ancient Greece, they believed lilies are associated with birth and motherhood as they thought the flower was created from the breast milk of Goddess Hera. That’s not the only meaning of lilies, Greeks have surprisingly associated it with masculinity too. It was a symbol of sexuality and eroticism.
Did you know in the old days lilies were used to indicate the sex of the unborn child?
The process was simple, but required that the expectant mum doesn’t know about this symbolism. The pregnant lady is handed a lily in one hand and a rose in other hand. She has to pick one. If she would choose a rose, the baby would be a girl and if she chose lily, it would be a boy (that’s a reference to the masculinity symbolism of lilies).
When to give lilies?
Lilies make great birthday flowers and are considered appropriate flowers to present during weddings because they are symbols of partnership and long lasting relationships.
They are also appropriate as gifts for new mothers and brides-to-be; share the symbolism of these beautiful blossoms with them, and watch their faces light up with delight.
Freesias are among the most popular and widely grown cut flowers in the world. Here in the UK over 110 million stems are sold each year. Although they are available all year round, their peak time is spring.
They come in a wide range of colours including yellow, red, pink and black. Unlike most other flowers, where the white forms smell strongest, if you want highly scented freesia; look for pink and red varieties.
Pink and red freesia (the brightest varieties) emit the strongest scent. Freesia blooms during the spring. It requires temperature below 21 degrees of Celsius for the successful formation of flowers. Showy, strongly scented flowers attract bees which are responsible for the pollination of this plant.
The tulip is both well known and hugely popular in Britain and comes in every colour imaginable, except blue and true black. They originated in the Middle East and are available November to May with British Tulips available from January to April.
Mostly associated with Holland they have played a significant role in popular culture with the artist David Hockney finding inspiration for many of his paintings.
‘Tulip Mania’ is an actual thing
Tulip Mania, which took place during the Dutch Golden Age, caused the tulip market to rise to extortionate proportions, it later crashed. It was one of the first-ever unpredictable market bubbles to take place in history.
A tulip was once worth more than a precious diamond
At the height of Tulip Mania, between 1634-1637, a single bulb was said to be valued at an astounding price – a massive ten times the annual income of wealthy skilled craftsman.
Those from the Netherlands are big fans of Tulips
Today, the Netherlands remain the largest producer and exporter of tulips the world over.
There are more species available than you may think…
To date, an impressive 75 recognised species of tulips and over 3000 varieties have been discovered.
