Plant list - Lilies, Irises and relatives

The family Liliaceae used to be a grab-bag of many different plants with 6-petalled flowers. These have now been split into many different families reflecting the wide variety of plants in the group, but we still think oif thesm as lilies. Amongst this group are some of our most reliable landscaping plants (Sagg, White-flag Iris, Flax Lilies), but also some small, delicate and beautiful gems. Many of the smaller species die back over summer and reshoot in winter/spring to give us a surprise as they burst into flower.
