Facts about the Lotus
Lotuses are found in white and pink colors in general and they grow in shallow and murky waters. The plant has its roots firmly in the mud and sends out long stems to which their leaves are attached. The leaves are sometimes, and Lotus flowers always, raised above the water surface. The beautiful and fragrant Lotus flower opens in the morning and petals fall in the afternoon. A bud symbolizes potential. The well known Buddhist mantra, "Om mane padme," refers to the jewel in the lotus, enlightenment. The Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) symbolizes purity, beauty, majesty, grace, fertility, wealth, richness, knowledge and serenity.

Thanks, Gillena, for posting this!

Devika--I didn't even notice the typo. This photo was taken at the Missouri Botanical Garden. I finally got there when the lotuses were in bloom!
