The American lotus (Nelumbo lutea) is sometimes mistaken for a water lily, but it has two main differences. One is the seed pod, which is shaped a bit like a space capsule. The other difference is the leaf shape. Water lilies are not completely round; they have a slit. The American Lotus has big round (or roundish) leaves with no slit. Some are a foot across.

 

Nelumbo nucifera is known by a number of common names, including blue lotus, Indian lotus, sacred lotus, bean of India, and sacred water-lily. Botanically, Nelumbo nucifera (Gaertn.) may also be referred to by its former names, Nelumbium speciosum (Wild.) or Nymphaea nelumbo. This plant is an aquatic perennial, but if its seeds are preserved under favorable circumstances, they may remain viable for many years.

In Ancient Egypt, Nelumbo nucifera was unknown, being introduced only at the time of the Persian invasions, late in ancient Egyptian history. The ancient Egyptians venerated the blue water-lily, Nymphaea caerulea, which was sometimes known as the "blue lotus" or "sacred lotus".

蓮 Lotus flower 【學名:Nelumbo nucifera】山龍眼目 / 蓮科;俗名:又稱荷花、蓮花、荷;古稱:芙蓉、菡萏、芙蕖。荷花有超過 800 個栽培品種。

 

荷花原產於中國,通常被種植於池塘之中,盛開於夏季。

 

荷花的根莖種植在池塘或河流底部的淤泥上,而荷葉則出水面。荷葉表面則具有超疏水性及自潔的特性,稱之為「蓮花效應」。

 

蓮花也是佛教的聖花,代表如來者,以「蓮花出於淤泥而不染」,來形容「如來已不為世間八法之所染污」。

Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden.

 

Nelumbo nucifera, also known as Indian lotus, sacred lotus, bean of India, Egyptian bean or simply lotus, is one of two extant species of aquatic plant in the family Nelumbonaceae. The Linnaean binomial Nelumbo nucifera (Gaertn.) is the currently recognized name for this species, which has been classified under the former names, Nelumbium speciosum (Willd.) and Nymphaea nelumbo, among others. (These names are obsolete synonyms and should be avoided in current works.) This plant is an aquatic perennial. Under favorable circumstances its seeds may remain viable for many years, with the oldest recorded lotus germination being from that of seeds 1,300 years old recovered from a dry lakebed in northeastern China.[1]

Native to Tropical Asia, and Queensland, Australia,[2][3] it is commonly cultivated in water gardens. It is also the national flower of India, and Vietnam. (Wikipedia)

荷花 Lotus flower 【學名:Nelumbo nucifera】山龍眼目 / 蓮科;俗名:蓮花。近期是荷花季,趁著昨天特休,趕緊凌晨五點起床,來去補考一下,這個月去了三次,終於找到要的東西了,每個地方花況不同,補考的地方大約也開了40%左右,自己猜想估計每個地方的緯度不同,所以開花的時間也儘不相同,拍荷說來有趣,曾看一老師說:拍荷要把當女人來拍,雖說自己境界未到,但能拍到心目中的荷花,也算是一種收穫吧!

Nelumbo "Perry's Giant Sunburst" Lotuses

For many years, I was fascinated by these seedpods, but had only seen them when they had turned dark brown and were included in flower arrangements. I was thrilled to bits when I knew they were growing at the Calgary Zoo and I could see them at all different stages. This photo was taken the day before yesterday, 6 October 2014, when I got to the Zoo for the second time since the Flood of the Century in June 2013. The tiny indoor pond where this was growing had just the one plant in it, unlike before the flood, when there were several.

 

"The lotus was of great significance to many ancient cultures, and in particular to the Eastern religions. From ancestral times, the lotus regularly appears as a symbol of purity, peace, transcendence, enlightenment, rebirth, beauty, and fertility. In India, the lotus flower is considered to be of divine origin and is viewed as sacred by both Hindus and Buddhists. Buddha was said to sleep on a lotus six months of the year, and Shambala (Buddhist heaven) is sometimes represented as a field of flowering sacred lotuses." Taken from the first link below.

"The pods/seed heads contain the Lotus seeds within little circular chambers on the flat surface of the top of the pod. These circles appeared to cradle the seeds, which are round, within the pod until fully ripe. Both the chamber of each seed and the seed itself got larger and larger until the pod bent over to finally release the seeds into the water."
