Flowers By Variety > Lilies

In many parts of the world pink lilies are used to bring harmony and joy to the home. The sweet, gentle fragrance of this flower creates a feeling of tranquility. These spectacularly large, long-lasting fluted hybrid with blossoms that open in succession for continuous blooming. Our lilies last for up to 8-10 days or longer with proper care. Stems measure approximately 18-20 inches long.

Our lilies may arrive unopened (this protects the buds during delivery) but the buds will come into bloom within a day or two and the recipient will be able to enjoy the flowers for even longer.  Please take extra care with lily pollen as it may stain clothes and furnishings.  To remove, use sticky tape - do not attempt to wash or brush it off.

Experience the beauty of our lily collection. Why not try out a new selection each month and bring a new variety and wonderful color to your home. The Lilies that will arrive on your doorstep are some of the most beautiful and fragrant Oriental and Asiatic lilies available today.  As sophisticated and elegant as our orchids, the luscious purple shades of red, pink and white are simply breathtaking to admire.  The subtle yet exotic scent of these flowers are unmatched by any other flower we have encountered. Contact our call centre team for more information or to arrange your order. For care tips consult our Lily Care Guide.

    I ordered  the Indoor Luxury Basket for my daughter which arrived in good time and she loved it. She took at photo and I was so pleased that the plants were in such a beautiful condition - healthy and fresh with buds, opening and full blooms on the flowering plants and shiny green foliage on the others. Thank you so much for delivering such a quality gift. Nige H

    The recipient was absolutely delighted with the bouquet.  She commented on the beauty and variety of the flowers, and was very impressed by the packaging, and that none of the flowers had been bruised in the least, despite the box. An absolute success! Thank you. Terri S

Sending Lilies

Lily is the common name for the Liliaceae, a plant family numbering several species, widely distributed over the earth and particularly abundant in warm temperate and tropical regions. Some forms (Lilium longiflorum, L. candidum, oriental lilies) are highly perfumed but white only; others (asiatic lilies) are highly coloured but scent-free. Availability: All year.

In Christian symbolism, the lily represents purity, chastity and innocence. As the flower of the Resurrection and of the Virgin it is widely used at Easter. The lily of the Bible(Cant. 2.1) has been variously identified with the scarlet anemone, Madonna lily, and other plants; the “lilies of the field” (Mat. 6.28) probably means any wildflowers, perhaps the iris. In fact, the Convalleria variety- also known as ‘lily of the valley’, with two long oval leaves and spikes of white bell-shaped flowers represents the Tears of the Virgin Mary, a resurgence of happiness. White lily bouquets are especially popular in Christian homes, during the Easter holiday, for they symbolize Christ’s resurrection.

Lilies are classified in the division Magnoliophyta, class Liliopsida, and order Liliales, family Liliaceae.

Be aware that lilies can be highly poisonous to cats. Owners should be aware of this risk and keep their pets away from them. Remove the pollen stamens by pinching them together and pulling them up out of the flower. This prolongs the flower's life as well. Use sellotape to remove pollen, not water which will fix the stain.
