The Clyde Ikins water lily was created by Dr Kirk Strawn one of the premier pioneers in hybridizing water lilies. It was named after Dr Clyde Ikins, a charter member of the International Water Lily Society.
The blossoms of this hardy water lily bloom from a stalk several inches above the surface of the water. The flowers begin with a yellow tone and then as the season progresses become more of peach color. These photos where taken at the water garden at the Como Zoo over the summer.
