These beautiful native plants have had a bit of a ride. They began as members of the Lily Family, and were called Smilacina. They were then moved to Convallariaceae, or Mayflower family, where they became Maianthemum, and thence to Asparagaceae, the Asparagus Family, and now this --- relegated to the Nolinoideae, a sub-family of Asparagaceae! What next? They like partial sun.
