Aquatic Plants
------------------- 
We presently  supply 2 types of aquatic plants, Typhonodorum lindleyanum and Lotus flower plants.

Typhonodorum lindleyanum is an aquatic plant endemic to northeast Madagascar. The plants grow to about 2 meters in height and are striking feature plants in ponds and small streams. They are fairly cold hardy as evidenced by the Pretoria Botanical Garden growing a superb specimen in the open.

Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) flowers are symbolic to perpetual life in Buddhism. The delicate pink flowers have a haunting fragrance. When the petals fall, a prominent flat-topped receptacle bearing edible seeds remains.
