Easter lilies popular for the season

Posted:
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - Easter lilies, also known as "Resurrection Lilies", are often placed around alters in Christian churches during the Easter season to commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

For some, Easter lilies are religious symbols celebrating the meaning of holiday. Countless others enjoy the flower simply for its beauty this time of year.

Linda Zoreb, president of La Crosse Floral, says that the Easter lily is not a fragile flower, but does prefer cooler temperatures. She also says there are a few things you can do to get the most from your lilies. One thing that can be done is removing the yellow pollen from the bulb. This will help the bulb last a few days longer.

Another thing that can be done after the plant starts to die is cut it down to the pot line. You can then repot it or replant it to have it return next year.

If you have pets, having lilies is not advised.  They are poisonous to them.
