Plant hunter E. H. Wilson (1876-1930) so prized his newly discovered Regal Lilies (Lilium regale), that after an avalanche broke his leg he carried on rather than abandon them, and when confronted with an approaching donkey train on his narrow mountain trail he lay down and let the donkeys step over him one by one. Thus he preserved his prize but was left with a permanent “lily limp”. (Gardening Australia)
