Nymphaea alba

“Could we get 2 open waterlily flowers in perfect condition to the CT Scanner at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge for 2.00pm on Friday”.

We received this unusual request last year from Greg Mellers on behalf of the team producing Plant Odysseys with Carol Klein for BBC2.

We took up the challenge and the results of that scan may be seen at 7pm on Monday 17th August as part of the programme looking into the development of the waterlily flower through history.

We will watch out for our flowers.
