The lily is one of Carol's favourite flowers and therefore always welcome in any bouquet that she receives. The pollen from the lily though can be problematic if it comes into contact with any clothing or furnishings. The usual advice for lily recipients is to cut away the flowers sexual parts which whilst it does prevent the pollen stains also removes much of the plants impact. If you do manage to contaminate your clothing or furnishings with the pollen do not rub with a damp cloth which will make matters much worse; instead use adhesive tape to lift away the pollen from the affected article.
