Marrie Aanerud, Lisbon, ND 404 Main Ave. Oakes , ;100 , By Sheena Wolf The Easter Holiday is marked by many cherished traditions such as the egg decorating and hunts, the chocolate bunnies and Easter baskets, sunrise church services, and of course, the Easter Lily. These beautiful white trumpet-shaped flowers syml'~)lize purity, virtue, innocence, hope, and life. When purchasing an Easter Lily be sure to look for high quality plants that are pleasing to look at from all angles. For the longest possible blooming period in your home, choose a plant with flowers in various stages of ripeness. The best selection would be a plant with ofie or two ripe puffy buds that will open within a few days and tighter unopened buds that would bloom over the next several days. Remove the yellow anthers as the blooms open to prevent the pollen from staining the white flowers. wither, cut them off. in your home, Easter Lilies ' cool temperatures, 60 to 65 degrees daytime, with night temperatures. Place the plant near a window with bright, but indirect light. Easter IJlies need moderately moist, well drained soil. When the surface of the soil feels dry to the touch, water thoroughly, but avoid overwatering. After the last blooms wither, you can continue its growth by planting it outside .in your garden. Plant the Faster Lily in a well drained soil mixture in a sunny location, 3 inches below ground level and adding another 3 inches of soil over the bulb. As the original plant begins to die back, cut the stems back to the soil surface and new growth will s~m emerge. The plant may bloom again late in the summer. Provide a mulch for winter protection and remove it in the spring to allow new shoots to come up. Whether you plan to give these plants as a gift or use them to decorate your own home,. Easter IJlies serve as a reminder that Easter is a time of rejoicing and celebrating. WILDROSE FLORAL 502 Maln Ave., Oakes, ND 742-3316 800-OAKESND
