A unique, nearly extinct water lily has been stolen from London's Royal Botanic Gardens, officials said Monday.
Britain's Metropolitan Police said the flower theft took place sometime Thursday when a Nymphaea thermarum, considered the world's smallest water lily, was pulled from a shallow pond in a glasshouse at the garden in Kew, west London.
