Easter Lilies have been a part of the holiday tradition since its inception. These beautiful white flowers are symbolic of rebirth and the coming of spring. As Easter draws near, along with the first days of spring, the Wiesner Bros. Nursery has prepared the delicate white flowers for your home. The white flowers with golden-hued anthers are a beautiful centerpiece for your Easter Dinner with the family, or as a wonderful addition to your garden after spring arrives.
Literature, art, religion, and mythology all speak of and demonstrate the beauty and purity of the Easter Lily. It is a symbol of purity, virtue, life, and hope. It is often a symbol for Jesus, Mary, and Eve for the Christian faith, and had a place among the the stories of the Greco-Roman Gods. It is traditionally said that where the sweat of Jesus fell before the crucifixion, Easter Lilies bloomed.
From our family to yours, Happy Easter from Wiesner Bros.
Easter morn with lilies fair
Fills the church with perfumes rare,
As their clouds of incense rise,
Sweetest offerings to the skies.
Stately lilies pure and white
Flooding darkness with their light,
Bloom and sorrow drifts away,
On this holy hallow’d day.
Easter Lilies bending low
in the golden afterglow,
Bear a message from the sod
To the heavenly towers of God.
