  hin yam (aquatic plant)

 

Myanmar

Hin yam is the Burmese name of an aquatic plant, with white cup-shaped flowers that rise above the surface of water.

 

It has elongated green leaves that float on the surface of the water, in a way somewhat reminiscent of water lilies (fig.). The flowers are picked to be used in local cuisine (fig.).
