There are more than 100 species, and many cultivated varieties of lilies. They also come in various colours. Most lilies grow from a bulb, which in some species develops into a rhizome, which carries small bulbs.
Clivia miniata, the Natal lily or bush lily is a species of flowering plant in the genus Clivia of the family Amaryllidaceae.
It is a popular plant for shady areas, and is commonly seen growing in older established suburbs. In temperate regions Clivia miniata is normally cultivated as a houseplant. In warmer sites, it can grow outdoors and is used in landscapes for its attractive evergreen foliage and showy flowers. This clump-forming plant spreads via rhizomes and is particularly suited for shady areas.
Lilium (members of which are true lilies) is a genus of herbaceous flowering plants growing from bulbs, all with large prominent flowers. The flowers are often fragrant, and come in a wide range of colours including whites, yellows, oranges, pinks, reds and purples. Markings include spots and brush strokes.
I am not sure if these are Lilium longiflorum, or Lilium formosanum. I believe they are sometimes called Easter lily.
I don’t know what these are. Too many similar looking varieties.
Many other plants have "lily" in their common name but are not related to true lilies.
