    Palito, your lotus are lovely. I've only seen them in the wild on the Tickfaw river SE of Baton Rouge and in a small area along I75 south near Gainsville FL. I've alway's wondered - do they have a fragrance?

    yes. they do. It's a bit weak, but the white one of the last picture , has a very strong sweet fragrance that you can smell from the distance.
