Comments:
FRAGRANT WATER LILY (Nymphaea odorata)- Beautiful large white or occasionally pink many-petaled flowers float on the water's surface surrounded by large, round green leaves. Showy flowers rise on long solitary stalks and are borne at the surface of the water or elevated slightly above it. The white (sometimes pink) fragrant flowers measure up to 25 cm across and have yellow centers surrounded by 25 or more petals. After the flower has finished, the stalk forms a spiral and draws the fruit below the water.
