Dazzling lilies set off colorful fireworks in the garden. Garden? Yes, the garden!

Many people are familiar with lilies as cut flowers but don’t know that they can also add sparkle to the garden or when planted in a container.

With all their beauty, symbolism and history, it’s no wonder that lilies were named the Summer Bulb of the Year.

Symbolism
Native to the Northern Hemisphere, lilies have been seen as a flower of significance for thousands of years because of the extensive symbolism that surrounds them.

The lily represents femininity, love, purity and a sense of transience. But lilies also have a wonderful history. In 1150, King Louis of France used an image of a lily on his shield as a symbol of his name, Louis or Loys, and power. The lily is also portrayed as a focal point in many historical paintings.

The new WORX® 40V Max, 17 in. lawnmower adds another top performer to the brand’s cordless mower line that’s lightweight, maneuverable, time and labor saving, user and eco-friendly, low maintenance and a highly efficient mulcher/ bagger. The compact push mower is powered by two, removable, 40V, 2.0 Ah, lithium-ion batteries and cuts up to 5,500 sq. ft. per charge, which is approximately the size of two regulation tennis courts.

Development of this newest WORX cordless mower parallels increasing consumer demand for more convenient and environmentally friendly lawn care solutions, as well as significant advances in battery technology over the past 15 years. It parlays the proven track record of its popular predecessor, the WORX 14 in., 24V mower, with a wider deck for fast cutting and higher voltage for added cutting power (torque).

The sophisticated, cordless mower has plenty of power to keep a small to medium-sized yard perfectly manicured. It features Intellicut™, the exclusive WORX torque-on-demand system that maintains constant cutting efficiency by electronically monitoring the need for torque. Sensors adjust to higher torque for thicker grass and reduce torque automatically when it’s no longer needed to handle everyday mowing conditions.
