Nuphar pumila "Variegata", also called variegated plump, is an indigenous aquatic plant. The ovate, variegated leaves are slightly tapered and can easily reach 15 to 20 cm in size. From May to August the plant blooms abundantly, with yellow, cup-shaped flowers, which treat us to a very special perfume, namely cognac or brandy. The bottle-shaped fruits release when they are ripe and first float on the water for a long time, until the seeds are finally released, sink to the bottom and can germinate there. Nuphar pumila "Variegata" prefers a position in full sun or partial shade, a water depth of 0.5 to 1.20 meters and a nutrient-rich soil. The plant is very hardy, attracts butterflies, bees and other insects and has little trouble with diseases or pests.
