Botanical name: Nymphaea

Instantly recognisable, waterlilies are possibly the most sought after of all waterplants. Choose from many elegant flower shapes and colours with attractive, lush foliage. With dwarf and large forms available, they are an excellent choice for a half wooden barrel, informal pond or the largest formal pool.
