Water Lilies

These floating, flowering plants provide many benefits in wetlands. Their flowers bloom in the daytime and close at night. Their pollen feeds insects while fish, ducks and animals like beavers and deer eat their leaves and fruit. The round, flat leaves of water lilies cover the water surface, shading the water and keeping it cool. The leaves also hide fish seeking shelter from birds.
