Welcome

Waterlily or lotus? Both are blooming now at the Chicago Botanic Garden. One easy way to tell: waterlily leaves and flowers float on or just above the water, while lotus leaves and flowers stand high above the surface. See them at the Aquatic Garden boardwalk, from the Serpentine and Arch Bridges over the Great Basin, and up close at the Heritage Garden. If you time your visit to the Heritage Garden right, you might also see the Victoria waterlilies blooming!
