Mythologically the white lily, Rosa Junonis, was fabled to have sprung from the milk of Hera.
Lilies, however, are not a conspicuous feature in the flora of Palestine, and the red anemone (Anemone coronaria), with which all the hill-sides of Galilee are dotted in the spring, is perhaps more likely to have suggested the figure.
Lilies are, under certain conditions favourable to the development of the disease, liable to the attacks of three parasitic fungi.

 Wild gerbils pollinate African desert lily - Brief Article Science News - Find Articles
In southern Africa, the hairy-footed and the short-tailed gerbils poke into a ground-hugging lily, slurping nectar and emerging dusted with pollen, says Steven D. Johnson of the University of Natal in Petermaritzburg, South Africa.
The researchers released the trapped gerbils into an enclosure around a plant, and the rodents dove for nectar, leaving the flower intact but their snouts gilded with pollen.
The lily work stemmed from the notion that unrelated flowers converge on rodent-attracting traits, says Johnson.
