Sweden Released Stamps on Waterlilies

\"\"The waterlily is a perennial water plant with large floating leaves that are round or oval. The Nymphaeceae family, which the waterlilies are called in Latin, includes around 60 species, of which three are found in Sweden. A long time ago the waterlily was linked to the evil spirit of the water, Näcken, and people were warned not to swim where waterlilies grew.The red waterlily still grows in Fagertärn and several other places in Sweden. It is a variation of the white waterlily, a genetic mutation that occurred at some point in history.
