“Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they toil not, neither do they spin and yet Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” – Jesus Christ, Sermon on the Mount
Ever wonder where Easter Lilies come from? (Besides our greenhouse, of course!) They were rumored to be at the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus’ sweat fell. The Angel Gabriel also supposed gave the Virgin Mary one of these special flowers as a sign of her purity.
The Easter Lily aren’t natives to the United States. They came here in 1919 by WWI vet Louis Houghton. By 1945, Easter Lilies have multiplied and today they’re the fourth largest plotted plan in the U.S.
They’re still a symbol of hope, joy, purity, life and resurrection — popular at Easter.
