There are about 3 blooms on each stem and each flower is about 20 inches. The Oriental lilies have remained the favorite of all flower enthusiasts around the world, due to their large size and pleasing smell.

Oriental lilies have been used to make perfumes throughout history. They are also used in cosmetics and facial creams. It helps in slowing the aging process and also works as an anti-wrinkle cream. If you mix the petals of Oriental lily with honey, it will help you get a soft skin.

The meaning of oriental lilies is a 'universal symbol for beauty'. It makes them good wedding flowers. This is because the meaning also includes purity and innocent beauty.
