Nymphaea Odorate- White Water Lily
Floating happily in the ponds, lakes, and rivers of the Northeastern United States, the white water lily offers a dot of pristine brightness in its verdant setting. This aquatic lily, whose botanical name is Nymphaea Odorate, features multiple layers of oblong petals that are centered with long, spiky yellow stamens. The petals of this water plant are occasionally pale pink, and the leaves and roots were used as medicine by Native American tribes of Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
This bloom is usually seen floating among a random pattern of single, broad leaves scattered on the surface of lakes, ponds, and slow-moving streams, and rooted to the bottom by an individual, long stem. Many more leaves are submerged just below the surface, one per node along the length. This flower flourishes an acidic, wet environment in the cold, temperate climates of the Northeastern United States.
The lily itself has seven or more slender, tall yellow-orange stamens, and the elongated white oval petals are set in a spiral pattern that alternates from layer to layer. They are slightly wider at the base than they are at the tip. The ovate leaf blade is not divided but features one split segment beginning at the center where it is attached to the stem. It is as wide as it's length and is a fresh, medium green.

Although they are present in every state in New England, they are most widespread in Connecticut and Massachusetts. When you see paintings of a water lily, you most likely see a representation of the Nymphaea Odorate, which has the most emblematic appearance of all aquatic flowers. You may even expect to see a tiny water frog sitting on its lily pad, enjoying a summer day.
