Botanically, agave plants are in the lily order Liliales and the order Asparagales (depending on which botanical taxonomic system you use), both of which define agave as a flowering plant.
Both families are part of the order Liliales. Other genera that are sometimes included as part of the Liliaceae family are Agave and Yucca (family Agavaceae) and Allium (family Amaryllidaceae).
