Victoria: Empress of the Water Garden

With enormous spiny pads and mysterious night-blooming flowers that trap beetle pollinators, Victoria waterlilies have long captivated those lucky enough to witness this fascinating plant of epic proportions. Join Anna Bower, Assistant Curator of the Living Collections, for a presentation on Victoria in habitat, their introduction to European gardens, and unique lifecycle and pollination strategies. She will also share the history of Victoria cultivation and current-day propagation and appreciation at Ganna Walska Lotusland.
