Small Yellow Pond Lily.

Characters. - Leaves deeply cordate, glabrous, usually about 6 or 8 inches in diameter. Flowers yellow, raised 2 or 3 inches above the water, much less expanded than those of the White Water Lily, and faintly scented, the concave sepals assuming a more globular form. Petals and stamens very numerous, but scarcely more than half the length of the sepals. Fruit globular, crowned by the stigmatic disc, indehiscent, or bursting irregularly.

A proving of this is given by Hale in his New Remedies.

Part employed. - The whole plant.

Preparation. - Tincture (dilute alcohol).
