Need help to identify plant
I live next to a shallow lake in southern New Jersey. During the summer
the lake is covered with lily pads and water lilies. One water lily has
a white flower about three inches across and opens fully. This plant, I
believe is called a Virginia Water Lily. The other water lily has a
flower that does not fully open and is about two inches across. I don't
its common name.
I need to identify these water lilies with their botanical names.
I appreciate any help you might provide.
