Nymphaea 'Bea Taplin'

(©Annie Reiser, please click to enlarge)

Nymphaea ‘Bea Taplin’ (Hardy Water Lily) illustrated by Annie Reiser (2008 BI-graduate) was presented tonight to Mrs. Bea Taplin, a long time supporter of Denver Botanic Gardens. This water lily was collected from Berkeley lakes (Denver, CO) for years ago and has since then been treasured in the Denver Botanic Gardens. (See some more images from the Transformation Celebration in the BI-Facebook).
Beautifully done Annie (medium: colored pencil on mylar)!
