What is the flower of death?

Answer

White calla lily is the flower most strongly associated with funerals, so it has a reputation as a floral symbol of death. However, there are other candidates for a so-called flower of death.

The poppy, for instance, symbolizes eternal sleep, which is a euphemism for death. A withered rose has a somber association as well. One member of the lily family may be the most deserving of the moniker "death flower." Meadow death camas is a highly poisonous lily responsible for fatalities among grazing livestock. In contrast, the beautiful calla lily symbolizes purity and the promise of eternal life after death.
