Many flowers appear around Easter. Tulips, deep purple crocuses, pink, white and purple hyacinths and hydrangeas. None are as symbolic of Easter as the waxen white lily. Perhaps, the reason this is so has to do with the shape of the flower.
Known as an “Easter Lily”, there actually are two types. One has a large open trumpet shape with equidistant petals and is often referred to as a Trumpet Lily. The other has a smaller flower head with one petal extended larger than its top petal. This is known as a Calla lily. Both are quite spectacular in Easter Flower arrangements. Calla lilies give off a subtle perfume that Trumpet lilies do not. Trumpet lilies also have longer stems than Callas.
