Joey Tomocik Water Lily

The Joey Tomocik water lily is a bright yellow hardy water lily. It was hybridized by Dr Kirk Strawn in 1993. This water lily was named after Joey Tomocik in honor of her father Joe Tomocik who is in charge of the water gardens at the Denver Botanical Gardens. Joe Tomocik also lectures, teaches and has a book on water lilies.
