Porterville Paragliding - Blue Lotus Water Lily.

The lovely Blue Lotus Water Lily is South Africas’ most common indigenous water lily and is found in ponds, rivers and dams in and around rural Porterville.

The water lily does not have true stems, the leaves grow on long petioles (leaf stalks) and one plant can spread over an area of about 1 metre.

White, mauve and pink are other colour forms that occasionally occur. The flowers are fragrant and visited constantly by bees for pollination. A fully open flower measures 15-20 cm across and lasts for about four days. Once flower buds rise to the water surface they open in the morning and close in the evening.
