The Denver water lily (Nymphaea ‘Denver’) has creamy white, double blooms which give an outstanding display. The petal colour is a soft white with a a hint of yellow and the centre of the flower is bright yellow in colour. The flowers are cup-like in shape and double with forty-six to forty-eight petals they measure 3-4in (7.5-10 cm) across. They flower freely and also have a slight fragrance.
Â The variegated leaf is medium green with mottling towards the perimeter and the underside is reddish brown with green veins.Â The leaves which measure 4-5in (10-12.5 cm) across are slightly ovate in shape and the lobes overlap each other.

We would recommend Denver water lilies as ideal for container pools and also for small to medium ponds.
