Eremurus libanoticus Mt Hermon 1700m. Note that the butterfly enjoys the lower flowers that look wilted. Surprisingly the upper open flowers in this species are not receptive, their anthers are stigma closed and they do not produce any nectar, they form an advertisement to attract insects that learn quickly to visit only the lower receptive flowers that look wilted.

An erect mountainous perennial with a spreading thick rook cluster. Stem erect with whitish flowers and orange anthers. Although thought by many to be included under E. spectabilis, we believe it is distinct.
