THE TIGER LILY MEMORIAL
The Tiger Lily Memorial brings beauty into the world and honors the legacy of the late Marcia Adler, our founder’s mother, who passed away on May 31, 2020. She believed in celebrating shared experiences, natural elements, and exploring common ground. The fund supports multiple initiatives that define these concepts and will change with the seasons.
Flowers, like people, have grown and evolved to show both their beauty and their strength.
This is truly evident in the tiger lily, with her vibrant orange blooms that close at night to protect her pollen from wind and rain. Like the majestic tiger for which the flower is named, the tiger lily has a symbolic meaning of confidence and pride, as well as positivity, selected for the cheerful and bright colors. They also represent friendship as told through a Korean folk story of the flower's creation –
A hermit came across a tiger with an arrow jabbed into his body. The hermit tried to remove the arrow and save the tiger, but unfortunately, he was not successful. Before passing away, the tiger promised the hermit their friendship would survive after death. His body then became a tiger lily and forever associated the flower with friendship.
