12 Garden Plants Named after the Blessed Virgin Mary

“I am a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys.” (Song of Solomon 2:1)

In the days of great faith during the Middle Ages, the Christian faithful honored the Blessed Virgin Mary in many ways, especially as the mother of nature and all living things. Closely connected with what grows from the earth as their livelihood, they saw Mary's attributes in the plants and flowers of their fields and gardens and named many of them after her - thousands of them. Legends about the flowers developed as people sought to connect them with Mary's virtues or events from her life. People also planted "Mary Gardens" and filled them with these plants named for Our Lady. These gardens were designed to be places of beauty, prayer, and contemplation that raises the heart and mind to heaven.

Featured in this slideshow are just 12 among the many plants named for the Blessed Mother.

You can find more information on Mary Gardens here: http://campus.udayton.edu/mary/resources/flowers.html and here: https://fisheaters.com/marygardens.html.
