Lily of the valley, from Ferndale Farm near Illogan, have been ordered for the Royal wedding.
The order was placed months ago but the grower Clive Symmons said he had only recently discovered the royal link and was looking forward to seeing his flowers on the televised event.
Flowers of Lily of the valley (Convallaria Majalis) are delicate but very fragrant and it is not known if the small white flowers will be used for buttonholes or bouquets at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
All of the 600 flower stems had to measure six to eight inches in length and if William and Kate are indeed following the language of flowers then it is our guess that these delicate blooms are destined for the bridal bouquet.
In the language of flowers, lily of the valley signifies the return of happiness, used since the middle ages when it was popular in bridal bouquets to symbolise purity and modesty.
Also known as May Lily, the flower is a famous feature of Flora Day which takes place each May in Helston.
The herb is associated with the Pagan festival of Beltane which occurs on 1st May, folklore claims that Lily of the valley protects your garden from evil spirits.
Since renaissance times it was used in France on 1st May to bring good luck and carrying a posy of the flowers is said to improve memory.
The Symmons family has been growing Lily in the Valley at their Cornish farm since 1940.
