White waterlily, Nymphaea odorata ssp. odorata, panorama, Swan Lake, Rockefeller State Park Preserve, Pleasantville, Westchester County, New York.
This large panorama can easily be printed up to eight feet long!
I always thought all water lilies were tropical plants until I discovered these at a local state park. This species, the white water lily, also called the American water-lily, the fragrant waterlily, or the sweet or sweet-scented water lily, is indigenous to New York state and is found right here in the Hudson Valley. I took this photograph less than 10 miles from my house where these gorgeous wildflowers bloom every August and into September.
The leaves of this aquatic native plant float on the water. Its aquatic nature is why this beautiful wildflower is named Nymphaea, which means nymph.
