The name Nymphaea ‘Moonbeam’ was inspired by the soft hues of yellow and blue that reminded us of a moonbeam on a summer night. Nymphaea ‘Moonbeam’ was a chance seedling here at Florida Aquatic Nurseries and was released to the trade in 2005. Nymphaea ‘Moonbeam’ is unique because of the flower color and shape. The delicate hues of blue fading into yellow is soothing. The petals have an inward curve more advanced than most flowers giving it some texture. Set on a background of lush green pads this tropical waterlily is truly unique.
