New Cultivar of Water Lily 

We have more daylight time now than wintertime, and water lilies turn vigorous to set more and more flowers. Spring is here.

Today, the water lily staff focuses on this cultivar with purple, double-petaled flowers. This flower reminds us of a cultivar is called "Midnight."

Its leaves are marbled in brown,

but the pattern fades as the leaves grow.

It's a pity that this cultivar is still unstable in its character. A decade ago, there were very few double-petaled cultivars of water lily, so this might be a satisfactory one, but it's not the case anymore today.
This one can be useful as a seed parent for further crossbreeding. However, double-petaled cultivars such as "King of Siam" were never successful in setting seeds at an attempt of crossbreeding. I hope another crossing with this cultivar is successful.....
