At the foot of the hill lay a deep morass, covered with the nelumbo and other aquatic plants.
When they arrived, nelumbo threw herself on the bed, without being able to stop weeping.
Another wonderful plant of June is the large water-lily the nelumbo luteum, or water-chinquepin.
These upstanding flowers and stalks form the distinguishing characteristic of the nelumbo species.
The nelumbo of Indian origin has ceased to grow in Egypt, while the colocasia of modern botanists has persisted there.
