The lovely Mount Cook Lily is one of New Zealand's treasured alpine plants. Its striking white flowers and large glossy leaves glisten amongst the formidable rocks of our mountain hillsides. Not really a lily at all, this beautiful flower is actually the world’s largest buttercup. Its cup-like leaves often hold water after a rainfall, offering intrepid travellers a welcome drink. This charm symbolises true kindness and celebrates those special people who embody this virtue.
