What is Amazonica

Amazonica or Oh-onibasu (scientific name: Victoria amazonica) is an aquatic grass of the family Nymphaeaceae. It is characterized by huge levitated leaves which have become warped and staggered. Having one of the world's largest leaves, it does not sink even if three children ride. Flowering in the evening and early in the morning, the color changes from white to peach color flowers.
There is paraguay oohonibasu in the same genre. The big difference between them is that the color of the leaves that stood up in a staggering manner is red brown on Amazonica and green on Paraguay Ohio Bus. Regarding the outdoor side of the bud, there are thorns in the lion, but not in the paraguay onimbus.
