Hardy hybrid waterlily, a cross between N. mexicana and another hybrid, N. ‘Louise Villemarette’. Its flowers are a soft pink to salmon with a center of yellow anthers, and are held slightly above the water. Leaves appear subtly purple-mottled when new, then fade to all green. If given the chance, it would gladly take over more than half the surface area of our waterfall pond.
In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: waterfall pond
