Description:

Nymphaea 'Josephine' was named after Joe Tomocik's greenhouse manager's mother. We historically send  waterlilies to Joe at Denver Botanic Gardens to grow for a summer for further testing before being released to the trade . Joe liked the waterlily and asked if he could name it. We think Nymphaea 'Josephine' is a great name for the waterlily.
Nymphaea 'Josephine' was a chance seedling however we are quite sure that the tropical waterlily Nymphaea 'Paul Stetson was one of the parents. It was released to the trade in 1998.
Nymphaea 'Josephine' is unique in that when released it was one of only two viviparous white waterlilies on the market at that time. It was the only white viviparous waterlily with green pads. It's a relatively small lily with a cup shaped flower that would be great for decorative containers or small watergardens.
