Summertime is a delightfully warm and rainy season that showcases millions of wildflowers throughout the Mongolian steppe, forests, meadows, and even rocky surfaces. It all begins in late May with Yellow Pasqueflowers; Asian Globeflowers appear in June, and Great Burnets and Alpine Asters open in July and bloom well into August. These are not just an adornment of the Siberian wilderness, but also food for 35 million of grazing animals including horses, goats, sheep, camels, and cattle. Moreover, all these flowers are often used in traditional medicine. For instance, boiled Asian Globeflower tea is good to treat angina, and the roots of the Yell​ow Pasqueflower are used to cure broken bones. Great Burnet stops bleeding well, and Edelweiss is helpful for low blood pressure.
