Anyone recognize this Hardy Water Lily? I think it is Darwin but I can't remember for sure. I need to try to get it identified if possible. I will need to divide these this year and it would help if I knew the name. LOL. Thanks for any help!!

Looks a lot like this Nymphaea Hardy Water Lily (Nymphaea 'Attraction')

Well, that's odd ... when googling I find it says 'Attraction' flowers are red but the ones in our database look pink. And when googling for Darwin, it says flower color pink. So, now I'm Confused Blinking We don't have any photo's of Darwin in our database yet and I have a feeling those pink ones at the Attraction entry might be Darwin.

Yes, I was thinking Darwin (seem like that's what I remember) but not for sure. Thought I kept the info when I bought them but that has been about 5 years ago now and can't seem to find that info now. Shrug!

Cat, Your beautiful plant sure fits the description. I submitted a database proposal with more plant information about Darwin but we currently don't have any photo's in the database so I hope you will consider uploading a few pictures: Hardy Water Lily (Nymphaea 'Darwin')

Cat, as growitall (Lori) on the Plant ID thread suggested ... try to get some photo's of the pads/leaves at the juncture where the stem is attached and maybe we can get an exact ID.
