An outstanding choice for large ponds and lakes, this wonderfully showy white water lily has impressively large, cup-shaped blooms with golden stamens. The foliage is dark green. It makes a good alternative to the native Nymphaea alba as it is more free flowering.
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.
