o·ri·en·tal / li-lee
Oriental lilies are known for their fragrant perfume, blooming mid-to-late summer. They are easy to grow and do best in full sunlight. They have a fast growth rate and should be planted in full sun in well-drained loamy or sandy soil.
A symbol for purity, sympathy, and innocence, the flower became deeply associated with the Virgin Mary. It is believed her tomb was covered in lilies which may explain the popularity of the lily as a funeral flower. Additionally the Lily is a symbol of beauty and elegance.
