Spatterdock Nuphar Advena 1 Gallon Pot


Common names: Spatterdock, Spatterdock, Yellow Cow-lily, Cow-lily, Yellow Pond-lily, Brandy-bottle.

Spatterdock plants grow in shallow water and are rooted in the mud. They have large leaves, 4-16 inches across, that are almost round except for the deep, narrow cut a third of the way to the center, where the stout stem is attached.

The leaves of this coarse, rhizomatous aquatic perennial are quite variable and may be wide or rather narrow and submersed or floating; the petioles & peduncles have numerous minute air cavities.

Flowers are 1-2 inches across and held above the water by their stout stems. They have 6 sepals, the outer 3 green, the inner 3 yellow and petal-like. The yellow petals are small, numerous, and stamen-like, mixed with the many stamens. The single, yellow, fleshy flower, with its prominent, lobed stigma is the best known feature.

Immigrant pond-lily, contrary to its popular name, is native to North America. At the northern extreme of its range it sneaks into New England, with populations in Connecticut and disjunct occurrences in Maine. The plant has food and medicinal value, and was used by the Iroquois to treat a variety of internal and external ailments.

Yellow cow lily can grow in water up to 16 inches deep.
