Plant family: liliaceae


The lily family brims with spring and summer bulbs and perennials, including tulips, and of course lilies (lilium species). Many other families are closely related, and its member genuses are sometimes counted in with the lilies. Examples are amaryllidaceae, hemerocallidaceae (daylilies), hostaceae, and asphodelaceae.

I use the GRIN online query system to determine plant families. The list below shows the plants in my database listed as members of the liliaceae family. Click on the botanical name of any plant to go to the plant portrait. For a list of all the plant families represented in our garden, see my families page.
