Nymphaea 'Gladstoniana' Water Lily
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.
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.
Plant in full sun between 50cm and 150cm deep.
- Flowering period: June to September
