The lily is native to China and Japan. Lilies held a role in ancient mythology, so perfect they were thought to come from the heavens and because of this, have been under cultivation longer than any other ornamental flower, existing in the gardens of the Himalayas over 3,000 years ago. It is a beautiful flower ranked as the fourth most popular flower across the globe! Lily flowers appear in wide array of colors ranging from white to yellow, pink, orange, and red. The flowers may be borne upright, horizontal, or drooping, and can be funnel-shaped to bell-shaped. Lilies are not only used for decoration; the oil extracted from them has healing and softening properties. Lilies are toxic to cats, if ingested.
