  • Blooming big business

    The trumpet shape is considered symbolic of the heralding of Jesus on his triumphant entry to Jerusalem. Scholars also believe the striking white flower may have also grown in that area.

    But if you'd like to have one in your home through the Lenten season, you better plan ahead.
