[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The "Madonna Lily" is one of the most spectacular plants of israel. The dieter of the floor can reach 10 cm and the height of the plant (see WS) 200 cm. Collecting the plant bulbs by Christian pilgrims to the Holy Land has brought it to the verge of extinction.

The pink blotches in the background are flowers of Alcea setosa, the local wild hollyhock.

The WS has also another view. These specimens are from the "Ecological Garden" of the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, striving to preserve the flora of Mt. Carmel.
