THE JESHANNA LILY

The Jeshanna Lily

Image description:

This simple but spectacular bloom is a member of the lily family, although its long curving stems resemble a vine. The flower is an elongated cup or horn shape, which expands as it blooms and changes colour. It is notable for two qualities: first, its trick of blooming from bud to full-blown flower in a single day, which it then repeats daily until its three-month season is over, and second, its powerful medicinal qualities.
