"Lilies are particularly resplendent in the Ottawa spring. The showy white Trilliums are well known, but there are many other less obvious but equally pretty spring flowers which belong to the lily family."

In this 15-page article, Dr Gillett provides keys to the lilies and closely related greenbriars (Smilacaceae) as well as detailed descriptions of the various species. The article is lavishly illustrated with drawings by Sally Gadd, Dr James H. Soper and Susan Laurie-Bourque.
