What are True Lilies?

Symbolic Meaning for orange lily: passion

There are many kinds of flowers which have been called “Lilies” but many of these so-called Lilies such as the day-lily, water-lily, and arum-lily, actually belong to other groups of flowering plants. Plants in the Liliales grow from bulbs or corms, both of which will store food over the winter or during the dry season. Unlike other Liliales, these vines produce their flowers in spherical clusters called Umbels, as in Bomarea. True Lilies are composed of fleshy scales without a protective outer coating. True Lilies are never dormant. Source: The flower expert
