Lilies are bulbed perennials with often very showy, bell-shaped or triangular flowers. The 3 sepals and 3 petals may be very much alike, and there are usually 6 stamens. The parallel-veined leaves are alternate or basal and may be narrow or broad.

Most lilies in our area are woodland herbs that bloom in the spring. Lilies proper, trilliums, hyacinths, tulips, onions, garlic, and asparagus are in the lily family.
