Xanthorhoeaceae is treated as one monophyeltic family in the Apg3 classification, including Asphodelaceae and Hemerocallidaceae.
In the Plant theory Xanthorhoeaceae is placed in Subphase 7.
We know only Aloe quite well. The keynote of losing stool involuntary and unnoticed show the Subphase 7 aspect. They have a fear of being rejected, becoming an outcast, which might easily happen when they are too filthy.
But there is also a strong desire to belong to the family, to have a good marriage. But that can become too limiting for them. They need more space, more experiences from life. This desire and their expression can provoke a fear that they will be outcast, that others do not like their extravagance.
Fear: losing their place with family, friends and self-worth, everything can collapse.
