We Grow Em Big In Minnesota

These monster lily pads measure roughly 6 feet across These monster lily pads measure roughly 6 feet across!! From what I could see, each monster lily pad has a vine that attaches to the smaller ring which is just about in the center of the photo. I'd never seen these before and have no idea what their official name is. They can be found during the warmer climate months at the Como Zoo in St Paul.

Wonderful. I've seen photographs of these before - and on television. It must be extraordinary to see them in reality. Lovely photo and beautiful how you've caught the light on them and the water.
