"Blue Lotus" (Nymphaea Caerulea)

The lovely Blue Lotus! Standing proudly just above the water bearing its beauty is an exquisite little light-blue blooming water-lily with delicate narrow petals. The large floating leaves are glossy green.

In China, there is a certain mystique surrounding Chinese gardens; plants are often used for their symbolism .... for example, the Lotus means ..."The Rising Soul".

This captivating "blue lotus" is certainly one of the most beautiful tropical water-lilies and adds to the elegance and charm of the entrance to The Royal Westmoreland Clubhouse and Restaurant.

Horticulture enthusiasts should not miss a visit to the The Flower Forest!
