The collection of Southwestern water lily during flood seasons in An Giang and Long An was captured by author Pham Huy Trung (Ho Chi Minh City), according to Vnexpress.
The water lily is not only just a beautiful bloom but also the main ingredient to make typical cuisines in Southwest.
Between July and October of the lunar calendar every year, the water from the upper Mekong River flows down into the fields creating a sea of water with lilies emerging on the surface. It is also a high time of harvest, fishing and cropping.
Water lilies are grown in most Southwestern rivers. Those which are grown at home often have stubby stems while those with 2 – 5 m long, purple or white color grow in nature.
The reason why water lilies are called flowers of the ghost is that they only bloom at midnight. If the sun rises, the flowers will droop and drown. Therefore, people must collect them from 3 a.m.
Water lilies are easily grown. The more water they gain, the more beautiful and healthier they turn out.
