Victoria Regia

Stavropol territory > Victoria Regia

Victoria Regia

Victoria Regia, royalty... Both name and appearance make anyone lucky enough to see it in bloom sit up with astonishment. Huge glossy leaves like plates, up to 2m in diameter and capable of holding the weight of a 3-year-old child, sway majestically on the surface of the water. And amongst these giants, for a few hours in the evening, appears a blindingly beautiful snow white flower. The unique lily can be found in the creeks of the River Amazon in far-off Brazil and Peru. And in Stavropol. A few years ago the aquatic royal beauty took up residence in the orangery of Stavropols V. V. Skripchinskiy Botanical Garden.

One of the worlds largest aquatic plants, it can be quite demanding- it requires particular water temperatures, light and humidity. However, the conditions created in the state capitals botanical garden are so comfortable that it blooms by both night and day, enabling residents and visitors alike to feast their eyes.

Victoria amazonica is not the gardens only delight. Here hasbeen gathered a truly unparallelled collection of plants from every corner of the world.
