This highly attractive and prolific water lily is prized for its luxurious, wine-coloured blooms, carried above handsome foliage. As with all hardy lilies the flowers close as the sun sets. Good for medium to large ponds
Repotting or planting
1ltr lilies require potting into a 3ltr or larger mesh basket. All other size lilies do not need repotting but benefit from being potted up. 30 ltr lilies do not need repotting for in excess of 10 – 15 years. There is no need to remove the mesh basket.
Plant in still water away from splashing fountains. Lower gradually so the leaves can stretch to the surface within a few days. Remove dead leaves and flowers during the growing season
