Nuphar lutea - Yellow Water Lily

Yellow Water Lily

Also known as brandy bottle from the strongly alcoholic smell of the flowers, Nuphar lutea is a beautiful, vigorous, native plant of still or slowly flowing water, often found in lakes and the backwaters of canalised rivers. It is a large, herbaceous pond-plant with a slowly expanding habit. The deep green, leathery leaves form ‘lily-pads’ on the surface of the water; there are also submerged leaves which sustain the plant if the ‘lily-pads’ are torn away. From June to August, butter-yellow flowers are carried above the water on short stems. Fast-growing yellow water lily needs room to spread, and is suitable for a large pond or lake.
