Lotus Flowers, Water Lilies in Full Bloom at DC’s Aquatic Gardens

Washington, D.C., is known for its magnificent cherry blossom trees, but you may not know there's a hidden gem that rivals those pink flowers a short drive from the National Mall. Giant lotuses and vibrant water lilies bloom at Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens within Anacostia Park from late June until about mid August.
