Additionally, its round and trumpet-like shape has been interpreted by some as a symbol of paradise, with its white petals reminiscent of the purity of the heaven that we all hope to experience one day.
Growing Easter Lilies
Easter lily bulbs are planted in the winter months, typically late December or early January. They grow best in moist, well-draining soil with partial shade.

Flowers should be removed as soon as they fade to encourage fresh blooms throughout the season.
