Its rounded, flat and floating leaves can measure up to 50 cm in diameter. Its very fragrant flowers, white or pink, or blue often reaching sizes of 15 to 30 cm in diameter consist of about twenty petals. It is an aquatic plant that likes heat but also resists frost (-15 ° C). The Lotus is emblazoned with symbols and sacred: it was the sacred flower of the ancient Egyptians, it is also the national flower of India: it represents the purity, the perfection, the wisdom, the prosperity and the erudition in the Buddhist religion because the flower blooms, immaculate above the troubled or polluted waters.
