Botanica Aquatica Waterlilies - Nearly 100 Variations of Beauty

History:   Humankind has revered the lotus plant for millennia. Even in our modern world the lotus remains an important fixture of Buddism, Hinduism and several other Eastern belief systems. Lotus is also significant to several Native American religions, and the tuberous roots of the American Lotus (Nelumbo lutea) was also an important source of starch for many of the Native American tribes in past times. The other species, the Hindu Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) has also a staple in many Asian diets for thousands of years, and remains a significant food crop to this day across Asia. This lotus (along with the blue waterlily Nymphaea caerulea) was also sacred to the Ancient Egyptians
