Harry Potter: "Do you know any flowers ghosts like?"
Rubeus Hagrid: "Seems to me they're partial to lilies. Tha's why you see 'em at funerals so much."
— Harry Potter asks Rubeus Hagrid how to cheer up a ghost.[src]

The lily is a type of plant that grows from bulbs and sprouts large flowers.[1] According to Rubeus Hagrid, ghosts tend to generally like lilies, which led to them being used during funerals. Minerva McGonagall also had a fondness for the flower, and kept one in a vase in her office. Hagrid refused to grow them in his garden, as they attracted large slugs.[2]
