This week’s flower is one of our most often requested flowers.
Stargazers are a type of Oriental Lily and are white with pink markings. There are 5 to 8 blooms on each stem and each bloom is about 5 inches across. When you receive an arrangement from a quality florist with Stargazers in it the open flowers will have the anthers (the small orange things in the picture above) pulled off. However, not all the blooms will be open when you receive the arrangement so, as the buds open it is a good idea to take a tissue and pull the anthers off. This will prevent the orange pollen from causing any stains. All types of Lilies mean purity, majesty, wealth, pride, and innocence. The Stargazer Lily in particular means Ambition.
