About Red Lilies :
Red is the first spectral color our eyes see and the red lily has the same attention grabbing allure. The Red Lily is not as common as some of the other colors, and recently the appeal of red lilies has broadened, as extensive hybridization has produced a myriad of exquisite new varieties. Among the most popular red lilies are, the blood red lily, the Jet fire red lily and the Terracotta red lily, which is the variety that we use in our flower bouquets and arrangements. The red lily is featured in only a few of our more exotic arrangements due to their exceptional and unusual nature.
