Water Lily (Hoa Sung)

Water lilies, which often grow wild in ponds and lakes, are classified into two species: lotus water lilies, planted in lakes around pagodas and imperial palaces; and wild water lilies, found in ponds, with a white or violet flower.


In the south, the stem of lotus water lily is used in meals.
