These plants can grow up to 1 meter in height and have characteristic lily pads, which are round and green with a white edge. The flowers themselves can be up to 20 cm in diameter and are usually blue, but they can also be pink or white.
Blue Water Lilies prefer still or slow-moving water and can be found in ponds, lakes, and rivers. They bloom from late spring to early autumn, depending on the climate.
