"Selina Sapworthy is a very famous witch specialized in water plants. 30 years ago when she met Sir Winogrand's collection in the African Lakes, she was absolutely surprised with the diversity and the magical potential that those water plants had."
—Back cover blurb of Winogrand's Wonderous Water Plants[src]

Sir Winogrand was a wizard and an herbologist who kept a wide collection of water plants in the African Lakes. Sometime before 1964, Selina Sapworthy accessed his collection and, based on its large magical and scientific potential, wrote a book about Winogrand's plants, Winogrand's Wondrous Water Plants. The book has been awarded the Herbology Book of the Year award by the Herbology High Commission, and it has been part of the required reading at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for at least twenty-five years.[1]
