Sunrise water lily

Sunrise water lily (Nymphaea ‘Sunrise’) It has glowing yellow, large, semi double flowers with long narrow petals that surround the orange gold centre. They are stellate (star like) in shape and show up well because they are held up well above the water surface. They stay open later in the afternoon than many varieties and the new flowers also have a light fragrance.
