बस यूँही……..

An interesting plant this, the Nymphaea mexicana. It started it’s existence in Southern US and Mexico.  Common names include yellow waterlilyMexican waterlily and banana waterlily.
The plant flowers during the summer, and also during spring and fall in warmer areas. Seeds are contained in green berries which grow underwater.
An amazing aspect we noticed is that the flower blooms for barely 3 to 4 consecutive days, and that too in the early morning hours. The petals shut and the flower morphs itself back to a bud in the afternoon. We have been lucky thus far that it has only bloomed on weekends.
