Common Name:      Nymphaea 'Tanzanite'

Nymphaea 'Tanzanite' was the Best New Waterlily of 2009 as awarded by the International Waterlily and Water Garden Association in their annual new waterlily competition.  Deep violet purple flowers with over 50 petals are a highlight of this plant.  Darker in color than any other purple waterlily on the market today its bright golden center offers a unique contrast to the overall color.  Another interesting characteristic is the lively mottling of the pads on Nymphaea 'Tanzanite.  Even without a flower this waterlily will still grab your attention.  A nice compact growing waterlily that is very vigorous and usually has more than one flower open a day.  Nymphaea 'Tanzanite' is suitable for any size water garden or pond.
