Online flowers: Lilies

Beautiful lilies come in a wide variety of colours and styles. Gifting a loved one's favourite lily is a great way to show you care.

Lilies are beautiful flowers packed with meaning. Depending on the lily you choose, it can mean passion, chastity, purity or mercy. It can even symbolise Jesus Christ within the Christian religion. Many people believe lilies to be a symbol of innocence, particularly as regards white lilies.

Lilies are also very commonly included in wedding and baby shower flower arrangements. They can be used in place of orchids for a much more affordable floral solution, or they can be integrated with other arrangements and flowers to add a touch of simplicity and elegance.

Lilies come in a variety of colours, shapes and flower types. This makes the flower particularly flexible and easy to work with, regardless of the design scheme it is paired with. From the exotic-looking tiger lily to the gentle, simple and innocent white calla lilies, it's easy to fall in love with all of the options.

They’re also a traditional 30th wedding anniversary flower. If you happen to know someone with a 30th anniversary coming up, you should choose lilies to commemorate the event. A spray of lilies and baby's breath is a beautiful way to recognise their dedication.

These beautiful flowers are also very commonly offered at funerals. When used in this manner, the white calla lily can denote sympathy and compassion for the family and loved ones of the person who has passed away. Generally, brightly coloured lilies should be avoided for funerals.

It can be difficult to find good lilies locally, depending on where your physical location is. You may not live within travelling distance to a flower shop, or you may need to visit several shops before finding lilies you like.

How to choose the best lilies

When choosing lilies, it's important to pay attention to the quality of the lily itself. When ordering online, try to ensure that flowers come with a freshness guarantee.

Make sure that you choose lilies that you will be able to care for easily. Generally, calla lilies and Amaryllis lilies are the easiest types to keep, while tiger lilies and journey's end lilies tend to be more difficult to keep when cut. Lilies of any kind make a wonderful gift for sweethearts, family members, or even co-workers.

Consider the occasion for which you are purchasing the flowers. Are you purchasing your lilies for a birthday, baby shower, funeral or anniversary? This will dictate what lily you should buy. You should also take into consideration personal favourites. If your intended receiver loves the colour orange, choosing a tiger lily may very well be a better decision than a calla lily.

Lilies are frequently combined with other flowers. This works to highlight and accentuate both the lily and the other flowers used within the arrangement. Some lilies are used singularly to create vertical arrangements. This can also be a beautiful, understated and subtle way to tell someone you care.

For best results, pair calla lilies with roses. Choose yellow roses for spring or a child's birthday and red roses for romantic love. Pink roses and calla lilies are perfect for celebrating Mother's Day, while mixing different calla lily colours can result in a lovely burst of spring colours.

Other types of lilies should be paired with other flowers based on colour, pattern and shape. Standard calla lilies can also be combined with tiger lilies or journey's end lilies for a light, refreshing, colourful arrangement.

Why shop at for lilies? is the easiest way to shop for lilies without any of the usual stress. With such a wide range of lilies available, it's nearly impossible not to find something you love.

With convenient options like free shipping, coupon codes and custom ordering available at many of the retailers listed on, there's no reason at all not to love your shopping experience.
