1. Victoria regia.

Marianne North

This majestic plant and largest off all Water Lilies inhabits many of the rivers of the north-eastern part of South America. It was first discovered at the beginning of the last century by Father La Cueva and the-botanist Haenke, and it was first successfully introduced and cultivated in this country in 1849. The picture was not painted from nature, but from Fitch's splendid illustrations, and done-in the fogs of a London winter, assisted by the memory of its magnificence in many tropical gardens. The leaves are of enormous size, often over six feet across, and have upturned rims four or five inches high, so that the Indian mothers, who go down to the rivers to wash, place their babies on them with perfect safety. In the right-hand corner a portion of the under-side of the leaf is shown. When the flowers first open they are of a pure white, but on the second day they are tinged with rose, which deepens with the age of the flower.
