    There is no such word, though you could have "There is a beautiful love lily flowering in the garden.

    However, the 19th century writer George Macdonald did use the word in "The Princess and Curdie" where another writer would have used "beautifully". I suspect that he wanted a three-syllable word in the sentence and created the neologism "lovelily" to fill his need.
