"I'm tired, it's raining, and I am not a waterlily."
- Russell Page
It was raining and I did get tired by the end of my last Longwood Gardens trip, but seeing the waterlilies in bloom was worth it! This day-flowering Nymphaea water lily was strangely named "Director George T. Moore" so I researched it when I got home. The pretty purple tropical flower was produced by hybridizer George Pring in 1941 and named after the director of the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis, Missouri at the time.
