Nympha

Nym*ph"a

(?), prop. n. [L., the water lily, Gr. .] (Bot.) A genus of aquatic plants having showy flowers (white, blue, pink, or yellow, often fragrant), including the white water lily and the Egyptia lotus.
[1913 Webster]

Recent critics have endeavored to show that this genus should be called Castalia, and the name Nympha transferred to what is now known as Nuphar.
[1913 Webster]
