About the Water Lily Flower

The water lily flower is a beautiful and popular flower that is often found in ponds and lakes. The flowers are typically white or pink and have a unique shape that resembles a cup. Water lily flowers are also known for their sweet fragrance.

Water lily flowers generally bloom in the morning and close up at night. Each flower only blooms for about four days, but a single plant can produce many flowers over the course of a season. Water lilies are pollinated by bees, which crawl into the center of the flower to collect nectar.

  • Apex – The apex is the tip of the plant.
  • Margin – The margin is the outer edge of the plant.
  • Petiole – The petiole is the part of the plant that connects the leaf to the stem.
