American Lotus

Sounds like the title for some sort of novel, doesn’t it?  Actually, it’s the name for the aquatic flowering plant below.  I caught sight of this lone bloom while rambling around 40-Acre Lake at Brazos Bend State Park.  I didn’t go around the entire lake, so I don’t know if there were any other American Lotus plants there.  I only saw this one flower but lots of the lotus pads.

  1. I have photos of lily pads with flowers on my blog. Are they all American Lotus? Not really sure. Take a look and let me know if you get a chance. Thanks!

  2. PS – I like your photos!
