Waterlily – Tin Candle
Collection: Oxford Botanic Garden
The waterlily’s botanical name Nymphaea was inspired by the nymphs of Greek and Latin mythology. The plant has a very rich history and cultural significance. The ancient Egyptians prized the Nile waterlilies and saw them as symbolic of the separation of death and the afterlife. Remains of the flowers have been found in ancient Egyptian burial tombs. Waterlilies also famously feature in the French impressionist painter Claude Monet’s paintings depicting the lily pond in his garden in Giverny. Waterlilies are among the most popular aquatic garden plants today.
