Lily grasses are characterized by underground stems called bulbs that vegetatively reproduce. Likewise their large funnel-shaped flowers are two sets of three sepals in radially symmetrical whorles. The inner circle is produced by two sets of three detachable stamina. The inner chasm is painted a delightful gradient starting in red shifting to yellow finally to finish in a deep black. This colorful, large flower is adapted to insect pollination. Onion (Allium cepa) and the White lily (Lilium candidum) have similar flower shapes.
