Question: Are tiger lilies considered monocots or dicots?
Quick Answer: Taxonomists classify tiger lilies as monocots.
Why Are Tiger Lilies Considered Monocots?
Tiger lilies (Lilium lancifolium) are edible hybrids with long, lance-like leaves containing veins running their length. They have six-petaled flowers, and their root system is a fibrous tangle originating from the stem. Any of these characteristics tell us it is a monocot. The genuinely defining factor, though, can be seen when tiger lilies first sprout. They display a single juvenile leaf.
