Water Lily ‘Aurora’ - Plant

Nymphaea ‘Aurora’
Water Lily ‘Aurora’

A playful water lily for every pond!

The colour of this unusual water lily gets darker every day. The 'Aurora' water-lily starts off yellow, later turning orange and finally to a coppery red. The new purple spotted foliage is also very decorative. The spots disappear as the leaves age. Such a gorgeous plant to have in your garden pond! This water lily is suitable for ponds where the plants can stand at least 30-60 cm deep.

Planting and flowering details
  • Planting
  • Plant the rhizome of the water lily in a horizontal manner in a large pond basket filled with special water lily soil. Line the basket with a piece of jute, place the water lily in the basket and fill with soil. Cover everything with the remaining jute and sprinkle with a layer of gravel. For a rich bloom, choose a sunny spot in the pond and place the basket at the correct depth. Light shade is also tolerated.

  • Care
  • In autumn, remove the dead leaves of the water lily from the pond. Place the basket at least 40 cm deep in winter in order to prevent freezing. Is the water lily too large? If so, in May you can dig up the roots and cut the thick rhizome with a knife into smaller pieces and replant them again.
