Nymphaea Caerulea

Family

Temperate and warm zones worldwide.

Description

The water lily has a rich history. The beautiful aquatic plant was sacred to the ancient Egyptians. The wonderful scent they spread made them very popular. They were used to broaden and relax consciousness. According to the ancient Egyptians it was goddess Isis who told them that the rhizomes are edible. The blue lotus is abundantly depicted on historical monuments, claywork and on murals. An image in a tomb from 3000-2500 BC shows that nymphaeas were often cultivated in square beds, located near a canal. At religious festivities, the flowers were an important sacrifice for the gods and the dead. Later the plant was found in the palace gardens of Amenthotep IV and Ramses III (1225 BC). Purity and immortality were attributed to the sky-blue flowers. 300 years before Christ, the lily was linked to the semi-devine women of the water, nymphs. Hence the name of the genus of the plant. Blue Lotus, or Blue Water Lily, is a beautiful aquatic plant that was sacred to the ancient Egyptians. The wonderful scent they spread makes them very popular. They were used to broaden and relax consciousness.
