The wonderful white lily known as the Easter Lily has long stood as a symbol of purity, hope, innocence and peace. Other names associated with the plant are Bermuda lily, the Trumpet lily, and Jacob's Tears, the Easter lily is a biblical flower generally associated with the resurrection of Christ.
In Christian tradition, the Easter lily signifies rebirth and a new beginning. It is said that stunning white lilies sprang up in the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus wept in the last hours before he was betrayed by Judas. Another legend claims that the white lilies grew from the repentant tears shed by Eve upon her leaving from Paradise.
The lily is mentioned frequently throughout the bible and serves today as a beautiful reminder of the significance of the Easter season. Easter lilies grace homes and churches each spring as a symbol of purity, joy, hope and life.
