  1. sacred lotus

    The sacred lotus, scientifically known as Nelumbo nucifera, is a plant of the Nelumbonaceae family. It is an aquatic perennial plant that grows in shallow waters and is revered for its beauty and cultural significance, particularly in eastern religions like Buddhism and Hinduism. The plant has broad floating leaves and bright lotus flowers that may vary in color, usually pink or white. Every part of the plant: seeds, leaves, and rhizomes, is edible and is often used in Asian cuisine. It is also used in traditional medicine. It’s considered ‘sacred’ for its symbolism of purity, divinity, and fertility.

  1. Sacred Lotus

    Nelumbo nucifera, known by a number of names including Indian lotus, sacred lotus, bean of India, or simply lotus, is one of two species of aquatic plant in the family Nelumbonaceae. The Linnaean binomial Nelumbo nucifera is the currently recognized name for this species, which has been classified under the former names, Nelumbium speciosum and Nymphaea nelumbo, among others. Names other than Nelumbo nucifera are obsolete synonyms and should not be used in current works. This plant is an aquatic perennial. Under favorable circumstances its seeds may remain viable for many years, with the oldest recorded lotus germination being from that of seeds 1,300 years old recovered from a dry lakebed in northeastern China. A common misconception is referring to the lotus as a water lily, an entirely different plant, as can be seen in the center of the flowers, which lack the structure that goes on to form the distinctive circular seed pod in the Nelumbo nucifera. Native to Tropical Asian nations and Queensland, Australia, it is commonly cultivated in water gardens. It is also the national flower of India and Vietnam.
