As the summer winds down in Fort Worth, there are many beautiful flowers which bloom in these lazy dwindling days of the season. One of our favorites is the amazing stargazer lily, thought by many to be the most perfect hybrid lily in existence. Originally the creation of American lily breeder Leslie Woodruff, the flower was specifically bred to point it’s head towards the sky, thus its poetic name. The stargazer lily is a combination of the most coveted traits of Oriental and Asiatic lilies, and although this flower has a short history, it is already well known and highly sought after. This month, Bice’s Florist puts a spotlight on this beautiful bloom.
There is an interesting story attached to the stargazer. Woodruff reportedly didn’t keep precise records of his experiments and the exact parentage of the flower is shrouded in mystery. Even so, the flower has come to symbolize the fulfillment of a dream, to honor the work of its creator. It is also emblematic of the passion, commitment, determination and success of anyone who works tirelessly to make their dream come true. If you know someone celebrating a success, the stargazer is the perfect bouquet. Stargazer lilies are also popular choices for birthday bouquets, bridal bouquets and anniversary flowers. The lily is traditionally associated with the 30th wedding anniversary. With its vibrant beauty, the lily can either be arranged as a standalone bouquet, or as the focal point of a mixed floral bouquet.
If you are looking for an exquisite and unique way to send love, congratulations or good wishes to the dreamers in your life, the stargazer lily is a perfect choice.
