Nuphar lutea

Brandy Bottle
Also called Yellow Water Lily. This native perennial has bright yellow, buttercup like flowers on stiff stems standing proud above deep green floating or submerged leaves, similar to those of a water lily. Its flowers smell strongly of alcohol, hence its name, Brandy bottle. It likes room to spread out, making it ideal for larger ponds.
