Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Overblijvende waterplant die inheems is in de tropische gebieden in Azië en Australië en die opvallende witte of roze bloemen heeft. Onder gunstige omstandigheden blijven de zaden vele jaren levensvatbaar. In China zijn in de bedding van een drooggevallen meer zaden gevonden van 1300 jaar oud die men nog kon laten ontkiemen, een record voor lotussen. Het is een heilige bloem in de hindoeïstische en boeddhistische iconografie.
