The Family Liliaceae is currently being rethought and reordered; Rather than titling the page Liliaceae, I decided to jump up a few notches and name this gallery the Class Liliopsida.
The Liliopsida Class includes several orders of monocotyledon flowering plants. The Order Liliales
includes the families Liliaceae (lily), Calochortaceae (Sego Lily, Mariposa Lily), Melanthiaceae, etc..
The Order Asparagales includes Hyacinthaceae (Hyacinth and Bluebells), Asparagaceae (asparagus), etc.
