I took this pic with my cellphone on 24 March in Dunedin Botanic Garden, not realising that a label with the plant name is visible above the water.. that’s a bonus! Nymphaea ‘Colonel A.J. Welch’ and I found a NZ website with info about it: “While not the most profuse bloomer, the Colonel is probably the most vigorous of the hardy water lilies. It is an excellent choice for use as a filtering plant in biological pools or water remediation projects.” ~The Waterlily Gardens
The flower is a pretty pale lemon-yellow colour.
