lotus flower

Nelumbo nucifera


The Pink Lotus is the National Flower of India. They are found in white and pink colors in general. Lotus flowers enjoy warm sunlight and are intolerant to cold weather. This is why the Lotus is not seen blossoming in the winter.


Spotted along a lake edge in Straughn, Indiana.


I'm not sure I have this identification correctly. This plant is pink and the American Lotus plant is yellow.
