Lilies are a beautiful and versatile, and a perfect flower to give for so many different occasions. Calla lilies, Lily of the Valley, and the Casa Blanca lily, are just a few examples of the dozens of lily varieties that make beautiful bouquet additions. The Stargazer lily is a beautiful lily that has become wildly popular as additions to floral arrangements, or even as the main attraction.
Created in 1978 by California lily breeder, Leslie Woodriff, the Stargazer lily is a relatively new kid on the block in terms of lily history. Stargazers were given their name because their blooms look up towards the sky. The Stargazer lily is known for its pink, red and white petals and a beautiful scent. The Stargazer lily is so new that it doesn’t have its own specific meaning, but it is typically used in a celebratory manner. Lilies in general are typically looked at as a symbol of love and purity, especially the white lilies, such as Calla lilies and Easter lilies.
With their vibrant and exotic looking petals, the Stargazer lily is an excellent option for celebrations such as graduations, engagements, new babies, housewarming gifts, and birthdays. A word of caution: lilies are toxic to cats, so be sure to keep lilies out of reach of feline friends. Here are a few of our favorite Stargazer lily arrangements:
