Planting and flowering details
Show moreYour Nymphaea 'Marliacea Albida' rhizome should be planted almost horizontal in a large pond basket, filled with special water lily soil. First line the basket with hessian, plant the waterlily and cover with the special soil. Fold the remaining hessian over the top and give it a finishing layer of grit. Plant in the pond at least 40 cm, preferably 60 cm deep in a sunny spot and it will flower abundantly. Part shade should not be a problem.
Show moreRemove all dead leaves of this waterliy from the pond in late autumn. The basket holding your Nymphaea 'Marliacea Albida' should be at least 40 cm deep to prevent freezing. If it all gets too big for its boots, dig it up in May and divide the thick rhizome into smaller pieces with a sharp knife. Replant the best bits.
