Lilium is a genus of herbaceous flowering plants growing from bulbs. Most species are native to the temperate northern hemisphere. They comprise a genus of about 110 species in the lily family (Liliaceae).

They are important as large showy flowering garden plants. Additionally, they are important culturally and in literature in much of the world. Some species are sometimes grown or harvested for the edible bulbs.
Lilies are leafy stemmed herbs. They form naked or tunic-less scaly underground bulbs which are their overwintering organs. In some North American species the base of the bulb develops into rhizomes, on which numerous small bulbs are found. Some species develop stolons. Most bulbs are deeply buried, but a few species form bulbs near the soil surface. Many species form stem-roots. With these, the bulb grows naturally at some depth in the soil, and each year the new stem puts out adventitious roots above the bulb as it emerges from the soil. These roots are in addition to the basal roots that develop at the base of the bulb.

Most cool temperate species are dormant in winter, while some are dormant in dry summer and sprout with the autumun rain and are bolting after the chilling of winter in the spring.

Most species are deciduous, but a few species (Lilium candidum, Lilium catesbaei) bear a basal rosette of leaves during dormancy.

Seeds ripen in late summer. They exhibit varying and sometimes complex germination patterns, many adapted to cool temperate climates.

The large flowers have six tepals. They are often fragrant, and come in a range of colours ranging through whites, yellows, oranges, pinks, reds and purples. Markings include spots and brush strokes. The plants are late spring or summer flowering.

Yaa Foozi,
Assalamualia kum,

A beautiful pair, compact shot and amazing colours, beautifully lighted. Thank you the tropical weather that keeps alive the nature, here we have about the autumn as dryness could be seen every where.

Bonsoir Foozi,

Nice picture. The flowers stand out beautifully against the black BG. The simple composition is very efficient. Focus is sharp and exposure is well controled despite the dark background. Nice work and TFS


Hi Foozi,

The flowers are well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing with precision the details and colors of the twin lily. The early evening light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
