Lilium ledebourii, one of the rarest species in the world, has recently flowered in Damash village of Amarlu region in Gilan province, northern Iran.

The rare flower, which is protected by Iran’s Department of Environment, only grows in Damash village of Iran and Lankaran region of Azerbaijan Republic.

Lilium ledebourii has been named after German-Estonian botanist Carl Friedrich von Ledebour (1786-1851).

The flower was first discovered in 1975 and was registered as a national heritage one year later.

The plant blooms from the middle of May until the end of June.
