Water Lilies send up seed pods in the center of thier flowers at the beginning of the season. These get pollenated and grow into these little grape looking things. As the seed pod matures they lose thier color and dry out and the holes contract, releasing seeds are dropped as wind, critters, or currents move the seed head. This ensures the widest distribution of seeds over time and location. Night visit to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.
