About This Group

April 4 2016 – an active group!
This group showcases the artist’s interpretation of Lilies, as you the artist sees them. This group is for ALL kinds of Lilies whether in the Liliaceae family or with Lily in the common name. It includes flowers, leaves, and plants. Our inclusion of plants with Lily in the common name harks back to the time when the Lily family was extremely large.

We accept ANY flower with LILY in the common name and there are lots – calla lilies, day lilies, canna lilies and water lilies, sword lilies, lily of the valley, fringe lily… and on and on. We have a complete list in the RULES section and in the Forum The Handy List of Lilies.

It may be as a single flower, a group, or a garden display. It is about however you make Lilies glorious with your paintbrush, your camera, and your post-processing.

The idea of lilies starts with the family liliaceae, and the genus in this family include lilium, tulipa, and others and is now a small family with 13 genera and about 400 herb species, including lilies and tulips – our authoritative source is http://www.mobot.org/theplantlist/.
