Casa Blanca Lily Pictures

The Casa Blanca Lily (Lilium) is an oriental hybrid lily.  It blooms in the Summer and gives off a sweet fragrance.  These flowers can be as large as ten inches wide.  They have rigid stems and make great fresh cut flowers.  They also look magnificent in bouquets and flower arrangements.  Because of their pure white petals, Lilium Casa Blanca are often used in weddings for decoration, bridal bouquets and centerpieces.

Here are some pictures of white Casa Blanca Lilies.

Billy Buttons Pictures

Billy Buttons are a flowering plant that is part of the Daisy family.  Their botanical name is Craspedia but most people refer to them as either Billy Buttons or Woollyheads because of their fluffy round shaped blooms.  They have long skinny stems which makes their big round blooms look even more unique.  Billy Buttons are often used in flower arrangements, decorations, crafts, and are popular for weddings.  They bloom during the Spring.

Here are some pictures of Billy Buttons flowers.

Here is a close up look at some Billy Buttons flowers.
