Flower spotlight: Asiatic lilies

Asiatic lily blooms are bold and commanding, and their bright array of colors can add dramatic flair to almost any arrangement. This is what makes them such a popular choice for weddings, event centerpieces, floral decor around the house, and even cake toppers.

Early bloomers like Asiatic lilies are popular among gardeners. They are hardy, easy to grow, and come in a wide variety of colors and types, including hybrid species. Even though their stalks can get up to five feet tall, they rarely need to be staked for support, and they propagate quickly. The majority of these lovely lilies are unscented, can bloom for up to a full month, and thrive in almost any soil type if they are properly watered.

Asiatic lilies are a great choice for cut flowers as well. They’ve become increasingly popular for decorating cakes and desserts. They are beautiful, more cost-effective than traditional toppers, and will probably outlast the cake if you remove the blooms and place them in water before everyone digs in! Be sure the lilies you use for a cake topper haven’t been treated with any pesticide and are safe to top your cake.  To be safe, always use wax paper or cellophane.

Certainly, the most popular use for Asiatic lilies is in sprays, bouquets, and centerpieces. Brides adore them for their bold colors and ability to enhance the flowers around them, as opposed to overpowering everything else in the bouquet. Their size, shape, and color variations allow them to pair well with almost anything. Although they are delicate and can bruise and break easily, the thicker petals hold up well in hot temperatures without wilting, making them a popular choice for summertime weddings.

Asiatic lilies continue to be a fan favorite and we suspect they will maintain their popularity for years to come. Let us know what type of lily you want to see in your next floral arrangement!
