Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Easter gardens – 1

Posted on by royvickery |

The display of Easter gardens, representing Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection,  seems to be ubiquitous in Anglican churches, and such gardens appear to be becoming larger and larger.  The example shown here was photographed in York Minster on 4 May, 18 days after Easter Sunday.  It includes a number of potted peace lilies (Spathiphyllum), presumably in place of the larger and similar altar lilies (Zantedeschia aethiopica), and, rather incongruously, potted exotic orchids.
