The Giant Water Lily of 1-Utama Shopping Complex

This picture is taken at the water lily pond of 1-Utama Shopping Complex.

A signage reads:
Victoria Amazonica is a series of flowering plants, the largest of the Nymphaeaceae family of water lilies. The species has very large leaves, up to 3m in diameter, that float on the water surface on a submerged stalk, 7-8 metres in length. The species is named after Queen Victoria of England. Victoria Amazonica is native to the shallow waters of the Amazon River basin, such as oxbou lakes and bayous. It is depicted in the Guyanese coat of arms. The flowers are white the first night they opens and become pink the second night. They are up to 40cm in diameter, and are polinated by beetles.

  6. Years ago my family and I went on a cruise where we met many lovely people from Malaysia.

    I've heard the biggest flower in the world also blooms in your country.

    Truly I am a bit envious of your giant lily pads!
