Yellow Water-Lily (Nuphar lutea L.)
Sometimes called "Brandy-bottle" because of the flagon-shaped fruit. This Water-lily bears its flowers above the water surface. The conspicuous outer cup is made up of five sepals. The true petals are almost concealed between the numerous stamens and the sepals. The leaves differ from those of the White Water-lily for whereas the veins in this form radiate from the centre, those of the Yellow Water-lily are parallel and spring from a mid-rib. It flowers from June to August.
