Q:

What do Stargazer lilies symbolize?

A:

Stargazer lilies are commonly believed to symbolize purity and innocence. The symbolism of these beautiful flowers dates back to Greek and Roman mythology.

The word "lily" is of Greek origin and it comes from the word "Leiron." The Ancient Greeks strongly believed that the flowers grew from the milk of Hera. In mythology, Hera was the goddess of all deities.

Stargazer lilies are white or pink in color, which lends to their pure symbolism. Sometimes, pink Stargazer lilies are meant to stand for prosperity or wealth. Stargazers got their name due to the way the buds open up and point at the sky.
