Lily is a summer flower with the Latin name of the family (genus) is Lilium. The flowers that grow from this tuber are characterized by broad petals like trumpets, have a pistil that grows like a match, the leaves are bright green, and are supported by an elongated slender stalk.

This flower that originates from West Asia and the Mediterranean grows very beautifully and has a variety of attractive colors, so don’t be surprised if people will feel at home looking at it even for a long time. Apart from the beautiful shape, the average lily also gives off a fragrant aroma.
In 1580 BC, a picture of lilies was found in a villa in Kret. These magnificent flowers have long played a role in ancient mythology. Derived from the Greek word “Leiron”, (generally assumed to refer to the white Madonna lilies).
According to ancient Greek myth, lilies were created when the god Zeus fell in love with an Earth woman named Alceme and gave birth to a son who was named Hercules. The god Zeus wanted Hercules to become a complete God, so Hercules was taken to heaven to be breastfed by Hera, Zeus’s wife.
Zeus thought that Hera would not want to breastfeed Hercules. So Hera was sedated to sleep. When Hera fell asleep, Hercules was placed under Hera’s breast, without realizing it that Hera was breastfeeding Hercules. Due to the effect of the drug that runs out, Wonder was shocked and woke up from his sleep and accidentally threw Hercules.
Then, milk gushed up to the sky and to the earth. The milk that gushed into the sky turned into a star called the Milky Way Galaxy, while what gushed at Earth turned into the first lily that grew on earth.
It is said that lilies are highly respected by Greek society because they come from the water of the Queen of the Gods. Like roses, the color of lilies also has meaning. The lily flower is said to be a symbol for people born in May.
Why is that? This is because this flower begins to bloom every May. White lilies symbolize purity and wisdom, while the Peruvian lily represents friendship and devotion.
In addition, pink lilies signify wealth and prosperity.
