Description
The Ministry of Communications is issuing the fourth in a series of Flower postage stamps, with broad bell-flowers and bush-clovers as its theme.

1. Broad bell-flower:
Broad bell-flower is a wild plant that can be found easily anywhere in our country. A perennial plant, its flowers are loved by people for their beauty, while its roots and leaves are cooked for side-dishes. The root of this plant is also used as a herb medicine in the treatment of a cold and cough. Its flowers are of white or deep blue colors, and the roots of white flowers are more widely used as medicine as they are considered to produce better effects. Of late, broad bell-flowers are sometimes cultivated in quantity on the farms.

2. Bush-clover:
The bush-clover is a plant that grows in the mountainous areas of our country, with pinkish purple flowers blooming sometime in June through August. As the roots of this plant contains bacteria that help increase nitrogenous elements in the soil by means of fixing nitrogen in the air, it is sometimes planted in barren lands. Since olden times its stems have been widely used for making brooms, bags and carrier's baskets, etc., with its leaves being used as feed stuff, and its flowers favored as excellent material for making honey. Thus, the bush-clover is a kind of plant peculiar to Korea.
