Group Details

The lotus flower appeared in legends originating from ancient Egypt. It played an important part in ancient Egyptian religion.  Growing from the mud at the bottom of ponds and streams, the exquisite Lotus flower rises above the water and is usually white or pink with 15 or more oval, spreading petals, and a peculiar, flat seedcase at its center.  This is a symbol of the sun, of creation and rebirth. Because at night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again.

Please add pictures of the lovely lotus flower.. Water lilies can also be included in this group
