Common Name: Nymphaea 'Sulphurea Okeechobee'
The name Nymphaea 'Sulphurea Okeechobee' was inspired by the area that this plant was collected from, Lake Okeechobee and that it is a cross between Nymphaea odorata and Nymphaea mexicana. It was collected by Dr. David Sutton from a medium sized stand of hardy waterlilies he observed in the Lake.
Nymphaea 'Sulphurea Okeechobee' was a natural cross between Nymphaea odorata and Nymphaea mexicana. It was released to the trade in 2000.
Nymphaea 'Sulphurea Okeechobee' is unique in the fact that their were no yellow hardy waterlilies with the unique coloring on its pads in the trade at the time of release. It is also smaller than Nymphaea 'Sulphurea'.
