From Friday, March 29, through Wednesday, April 17 (end-date to be determined by weather conditions),the Botanical Building will be filled with a multitude of fragrant Easter lilies. This is the 54th year this popular display has been held in Balboa Park.

Historically, white lilies are depicted on Minoan frescoes dating back more than 3,500 years, and ancient Romans planted the lily along roadsides for medicinal use by traveling legions of solider needing treatment for wounds and sores. The 1st-century Christian church adopted the lily as a traditional, time-honored flower of Easter.
