Q. When are water lilies (lotus) in bloom at the New York Botanical Garden?
Water lilies (Nymphaea) and lotus (Nelumbo) can be found blooming in the aquatic garden (in the NYBG conservatory courtyard) through most of the summer (from late June onward). They are at their peak in late July through August.
