Nymphaea nucifera, known primarily as the sleeping lotus, is a water lily in the genus Nymphaea. Like other species in the genus, the plant contains the alkaloids aporphine and nuciferine, possibly in higher concentrations. It was created by the hybridization of the Nymphaea caerulea (or blue Egyptian lotus) and the Nelumbo nucifera (or sacred Indian lotus).[1][2]
