Learn from Paul Mills, Curator of Living Collections, about the water-loving plants of Lotusland. From our namesake plant, the sacred lotus, to the common duckweed, these hydrophytes often have specialized adaptations to survive in their watery environment. We’ll learn about one of the largest leaved plants, Gunnera tinctoria of southern Chile and the smallest vascular plant, Wolfia arrhiza along with the history of the water gardens at Lotusland and plenty of glam shots of our hardy and tropical water lilies.
