Amazon Waterlily Pavilion

One of the newer structures in Adelaide's Botanical Gardens is the Amazon Waterlily Pavilion.

Inside the 'glass house' are two very special exhibits growing in a large central pond; Victoria amazonica (Amazon Waterlily) and Nymphaea caerulea (Blue Nile waterlily). Other South American flora has been planted in beds surrounding the pond.
