Nymphaea

Maybe I'm going colour blind but these look pink and not white, in which case they are probably a garden cultivar, of which there are many!

Colour Blindness

Hi David, No need to worry about colour blindness; they do have some pink petals. I chose "White", because my limited Collins Guide suggested there were 2 variants, Yellow and White, and the photo of the White plant had pink tinges to some petals. Not being an expert, I chose "White"; thanks for the advice that they might be cultivars.
