The Yellow Water-lily is a common plant of still or slow-moving water and grows in ponds, lakes, canals and ditches. It has large ‘lily pad’ leaves, up to 40cm across, and grows in water up to 3 metres deep, with the leaves floating on the surface. It flowers during the summer from June to September, and smells like the dregs of wine, hence other common names like ‘Brandy Bottle’.
