Oh what a beauty!

A lovely surprise awaited me down the back garden today.

Nymphoides crenata, variegated form

The Australian native waterlily, Nymphoides crenata, it’s common name is the Crenated Fringe or the Wavy Marshwort. I don’t think either of those sounds very flattering.  This little  beauty is only some 4cm in diameter and the leaves generally about 10cm in diameter. The leaves are deep green with dark purple / bronze patterning.
