N. 'Anne Emmet' Winch, 1985
Named for the late Anne Emmet of Colorado who
was one of Dad's regular waterliily correspondents during the
1980s and 1990s. She arranged for him to deliver his hybridizing
paper at the 1987 IWGS Symposium in Denver.
The lily has deep chartreuse-purple flowers,
green pads and is a medium sized plant. Second and third day
flowers can wilt in very hot weather so light midday shade is
recommended. It is stunning in cooler climates, or in spring
and fall in hot climates.
