Colour me Daylily!

Depending on their hue, lilies have different meanings.  Graceful and classic, pure white lilies exemplify morality and chastity, while brilliant orange tiger lilies bring to mind prosperity and dignity.  While purple has been know to signify royalty, the purple lily stands for passion. Variegated coloured lilies speak to dedication and friendliness.  Popular the world over, some species of the day lily are eatable in cuisine from China, including stir-fry dishes and soup. Whether culinary or for their beauty, lilies are significant in literature and culture in much of the world.
