There is an old legend from Asia about the Lily. A Korean hermit helped a wounded tiger by removing an arrow from its body. The tiger asked the hermit to use his powers to perpetuate their friendship after his death. The hermit agreed and when the tiger died, his body became a lily. Eventually the hermit drowned and his body was washed away. The Lily then spread everywhere around the world searching for his old friend. Soon you too will be looking for Prairie Lily everywhere you go!
