Product details

  • Perennial: Dies back in winter and regrows in spring
  • Planting instructions: 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.
  • Planting position: Plant in full sun
  • Rate of growth: Fast
  • Soil type: Heavy clay or loam soil is recommended.
  • Latin name: Nymphaea Alba
  • Eventual width: 1.5m.
  • Deciduous: Loses leaves in autumn and winter.
