Spatterdock in Oulton (VC63)

One of my regular local walks takes me past Oulton Hall ponds and its thriving population of the North American water-lily Spatterdock (Nuphar advena). So I thought it about time I shared some photos. Its related to our native Yellow Water-lily (Nuphar lutea) but some of the leaves are held above the water's surface and are more pointed.

Another post on water-lilies to follow soon.
