How to use "Liliid monocot family" in context?
The Liliales, also known as the Liliaceae, are a monocotyledonous family of flowering plants traditionally divided into two genera, Lilius and Lilium. However, phylogenetic studies indicate that the Liliales descend from a common ancestor, and the two genera should be merged into one. The current classification is largely based on morphological features, and the phylogenetic relationships of the family are not well understood. The Liliales are commonly known as lilies, and are most specialized as bulb plants.
