The Easter Lily: A symbolic journey

Wednesday, March 27, 2013 by The Press in Focus

The Easter Lily (Lilium longiflorum), native to the Ryukyu Islands of southern Japan, was discovered by plant explorer Carl Peter Thunberg in 1777 and sent to England in 1819.

Missionaries and sailors carried the Easter Lily to Bermuda in 1853. Considerable commercial bulb production took place in Bermuda during the late 1800's, hence the other name for this bulbous plant: Bermuda Lily. When a virus destroyed the crop there in 1898, production moved to Japan where it continued until the outbreak of World War II.
