Nymphaea – Kew’s Stowaway Blues has very bright blue flowers that are very eye-catching. This hybird was accidently created from Nymphaea Powlathanga Barre Hellquist and Nymphaea Carpentariae Andre Leu. A species material was sent by Andre Leu from Australia to Kew Gardens’ Carlos Magdalena. Upon growing from the tuber it was discovered the species was not what was intended to be sent. It is a tropical day bloomer with origin date of 2008 and the flowers are starry cup shape.
