Undine! Chances are you recognize this sculpture but didn't know her name

Lily Pond and Conservatory Rose Beds with Undine:

At the entrance to the Conservatory of the Two Sisters in the New Orleans Botanical Garden is the garden’s collection of aquatics. This pond holds a variety of tropical and hardy water lilies and other aquatics from late March to Fall. .

The pool is unfiltered. Submerged plants help to keep the water clean while fish eat any mosquito larvae. Each of the plants in the pond is planted in plastic pots raised off the pond’s floor to six to eight inches below the water surface. In the keyhole of the pond is Undine, (1935) a sculpture by Rose Marie Huth.

The pond is flanked by four formal rose beds holding several varieties of modern roses.

Today’s a great day to visit the New Orleans Botanical Garden! Well, any day is a great day! (Except Mondays, on Mondays they are closed).
OPEN:Tuesday-Sunday: 10 am-4:30 pm. Hope to see you there soon!
