Kenya Lilies: Amazingly Interesting Facts

Lilies of the Field, as a famous novel goes by that name, is not just a parody but a realistic fact about lilies because they spread majestically all over the field, especially in the Northern hemisphere. Virtually every country of Europe has its own variety, but then, do they beat the African variety with its white sparkling beauty or the Asian bulb that is edible too?

Lilies have become widespread in civilized appeal, transmuting from wild flowers into some of the best boutique florets worth a shelf life and a half over other flowers whether from a hydroponic farm or a natural family growing backyard such as where Selina Flowers sources its own varieties. Numerous countries in Europe have their own but, as we started by saying, cool weather and plenty of moisture is not all that the northern climate wins  the show with for the flower also requires plenty of tropical sunshine for pollination, and as such, the Kenya lily and Ethiopia lily have the majesty to appeal.

In general, the lily has edible varieties. The bulbous strain that  does well in the Far-east, especially in Japan and China, eventually blushes away its beauty as a flower ready for partaking in the afternoon repast. The common species for eating include the lilium brownii and Lilium pumilum. Both of these are lush in the northerly climes of mainland China, though in some instances the central provinces also provide conducive growth conditions.

Another interesting factual tip about lilies is that, despite being highly popular for their sweet odor, you may be surprised to learn that only the cream or white lily is fragrant. All other colored varieties, with the exception of the tiger lily which is one of the most odorous of all flowers in general, do not generate any scent!

It is also the pathway to that special person in your life to whom a simple way of life, of which the flower symbolizes, is the key to his or her heart.

In debunking the myths of traditional society lies another strong assertion about the lily: its good luck. The Orient had it that possessing the flower would induce luck into your home, while the Assyrians who ruled Asia minor pegged the lily with holiness. This is not a far-fetched fact as in Christianity the flower denotes chastity, not a far cry from the Greeks’ belief that the flower is a symbol of motherhood.
