Nymphaea 'Tanzanite' was hybridized by Florida Aquatic Nurseries in 2009 and won the award of Best New Waterlily of 2009 from the International Waterlily and Water Garden Association. The bloom of Tanzanite is a deep purple with over 50 petals. The bloom is accented by green pads with purple mottling.
