Lilies

Parent Category: Plants and Flowers
Herbaceous flowers of the genus Lilium, noted for their large tepals and fragrant scent. They grow from bulbs. Most species are native to the temperate northern hemisphere. They comprise a genus of about 110 species in the lily family (Liliaceae). They are important as large showy flowering garden plants. Additionally, they are important culturally and in literature in much of the world. Some species are sometimes grown or harvested for the edible bulbs. The species in this genus are the true lilies. Many other plants exist with "lily" in the common English name, some of which are quite unrelated to the true lilies.
Lillies are pollinated by insects. However humans will cross  pollinate to make new cultivars. Usually they will use a Q tip to  spread the pollen.
It mostly depends on what type of environment they are in, but they  mostly die in the colder and snowy months. Sometimes they grow back  in the spring after winter. Sometimes if they have the right  conditions they can live for 20 years or more.
