How to use "Lilium" in context?
Lilium is a genus of about 100 species of flowering plants in the family Liliaceae, first described as a genus in 1753. They are monocotyledons, meaning they have a single seed leaf, and are typically tall, slender, and flower in the late winter to early spring. The flowers are typically small, white, and peak during the second half of the flower's bloom cycle.
The name lilium is derived from the Latin word for lily, which is also the family name for this genus. The name is given to these plants for their small, white, lily-like flowers.
