A popular waterlily, Nymphaea carnea produces showy, vanilla-scented, semi-double, pale pink flowers with golden-yellow centres from June to September. Often, in the first year, it will also produce white flowers.

An excellent choice for a wildlife pond, when fully established, this water lily provides shade and shelter for fish and other aquatic wildlife. Additionally, the plants will help reduce the occurrence of blooms of algae, supressing blanket weed and other pond nasties, while at the same time improving the oxygen content.

Top Tips

Water lilies flourish in still water, so do not plant them near a pond pump or fountain.

As these Lilies are dry-packed, young plants, they need starting off gently. Initially, place the filled baskets on a shallow shelf of the pond, where only the top of the plant is at the water line, and allow it to establish.
Alternatively, set them up submerged in a decorative pot or planter on your decking or patio to start, then, when established, move them into the pond.

Care Information

  • The mesh container is specially designed to allow water to circulate through the compost, providing the plants with both oxygen and nutrients.
  • To plant up, add 1/3 of the soil to the basket and place the lily on top, spreading its roots. Add the rest of the soil and the gravel on top.
  • After potting and once established, all you need to do is to place the pot into a pond. Initially the pot should be placed on a stack of bricks so the leaves float on the surface of the water.
  • As the plant matures, remove one layer of bricks at a time, gradually lowering the plant into the pond until the desired depth has been reached.
  • Water lilies require sun to grow, blooming when water temperatures reach 15C (60F), so best positioned in full sun.
  • Depth of the water should not be less than 60cm (2ft) nor more than 120cm (4ft).
  • Feed in spring and summer, removing yellow leaves and spent flowers regularly to maintain blooming.
