Common name and Binomial Name

The common name of my plant is purple lily and the binomial name is Lilium Purpurum

Environment My Plant Lives In

My plant lives in a very watery area. It sits on top of pond.

Adaptations of my plant.

1. The first adaptation is it's extremely long roots. To get to the very bottom of the pond and get as much water as possible.

2. Longer stem to push the flower farther up into the air so it can get more sun

3. More colorful. To attract more pollinators.

Plant dispersal

The seed is equipped with a boat like structure so it can float on the pond for awhile until waves move it.
