Photographer's Note

The summer of siberia is short but the blooming is graete over there. one of the most beautifull flowers is the Koral Lily or Lilium pumilum. With a plant this beautiful, you wouldn't expect it to be medicinal. It is used in traditional Mongolian medicine to treat liver and gastrointestinal disorders. Recent scientific studies concluded that extracts from the plant stimulate bile flow and has the added benefit of no toxicity to the liver. With a short stature, it's no surprise that its epithet pumilum means dwarf. Even the bulbs are dwarf little things about the size of marbles.
