Geocache Description:

What's a Lilly Pad?

Nymphaeaceae is the botanical name of a family of flowering plants. The family is also called the waterlily family. The white water lily is the national flower of Bangladesh. It is also the birth flower for July.

Water-lilies are rooted in soil in bodies of water, with leaves and flowers floating on the water surface. The leaves are round, with a radial notch in Nymphaea and Nuphar, but fully circular in Victoria.

Horticulturally, water-lilies are divided into two main categories: hardy and tropical. Hardy water lilies bloom only during the day, but tropical water lilies can bloom either day or night, and are the only group to contain blue-flowered plants.

The viability of water lily seeds is exceptionally long, around 2000 years.

Water lilies can be fragrant (for example Nymphaea odorata). There are hundreds of variations of a common water lily.

Water Lilies are most famously represented in popular culture by the French artist Claude Monet in a series of paintings.

-----------------------------------------------------

Terrain Rating is higher in the summer months due to all the grass and under growth. Still not too bad. Coordinates were very difficult to obtain due to the tree cover. Feel free to post your coords.
