The water lily, she is a nymphea, became famous thanks to one of the ancient Greek legends, according to which an unrequited nymph in love disappeared forever in the depths of the sea, turning into a flower. The nymphea flower is a perennial aquatic plant with a long stem and a well-developed root system, hidden under a layer of silt and water. Water lilies stay on the water due to powerful root shoots with which the plant clings to the ground and wide floating leaves. The bloom of the nymphea begins in the spring, revealing large water lilies of white, pink, pale yellow, purple and blue colors. One of the interesting features of the water lily is its ability to close at night and go under water, restoring the freshness of the flower for a new day.
