Nymphaeaceae is a family of flowering plants. Members of this family are commonly called water lilies and live as aquatic herbs in temperate and tropical climates around the world.IMG_4036

Water lilies are the quintessential aquatic garden plants; for many people water features are “water-lily ponds”. These lilies are well-deserving of their popularity; hardy, long-lived, with blossoms of almost every color, water lilies abound in their practical and esthetic value to the aquatic gardener.IMG_4037

Though there are about sixty-five species of water lilies in seven genera found worldwide, the genus Nymphaea  is the genus of modern water lilies, in the similar named family Nymphaeaceae.
