Image Description: A serene picture of a white water lily floating on top of shiny green lily pads. The lovely white water lily is the national flower of Bangladesh, and the blue water lily is the national flower of Sri Lanka; it is also the birth flower for the month of July. Water lilies can live in either tropical or temperate freshwater areas all over the world, and there are about seventy different species of water lilies, including two giant species of the genes 'Victoria' found in South America. The flowering water lily and the lily pad leaves float on top of the water while the roots are growing under the soil in the lake floor. French artist Claude Monet (1840-1926) enjoyed painting water lilies in many of his paintings.
