Bimini Twist

The Most Beautiful Water Lily, Nymphaea Bimini Twist, photographed in the Lily House at Kew this week. Electric!

“Nymphaea ‘Bimini Twist’ is an exciting new tropical waterlily hybrid that creates a new unique look with an abundance of petalloid stamens making for an exceptionally full flower. This tropical waterlily also has the benefit of vividly mottled pads that are green with purple splashes. This gives ‘Bimini Twist’ a striking appearance even if there are no flowers. Nymphaea ‘Bimini Twist was entered in the International Waterlily and Water Garden Society’s new waterlily competition in 2010 and came away with the honors of Best New Tropical Waterlily.”
