OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAToday I would like to discuss lilies. There are various types of lilies including calla, oriental and stargazer lilies…to name a few. These beautiful, exotic flowers are sometimes used in wedding bouquets, boutonnières and floral arrangements. If lilies will be included in your special day there is something you may want to address. If you look at the picture of the lily above you will notice little tentacles (or filaments is the technical term) in the middle of the lily. The fuzzy ends on the tentacles are called anthers. The anthers make pollen and the pollen can get on your wedding attire and stain it. Therefore, you may want to consider having the anthers removed from the lilies you will be using at your wedding or special event. I hope everyone is having a great week!
