Albatross white water lily (Nymphaea Albatross)

The Albatross white water lily (Nymphaea ‘Albatross) has wonderful pure white stellate (star shaped) flowers with yellow centres. The blooms have twenty nine or thirty petals and measure 15-20 cm across. This is a very free flowering water lily producing magnificent blooms and providing a natural wildlife habitat for aquatic wildlife.

  • Leaves are at first purple maturing to olive green with a few purple blotches. The leaves are red on the underside. Each leaf is round in shape with it’s sinus half to two thirds open and measures 8-10 in (20-25 cm) across.
  • Albatross water lily is not too vigorous and therefore is a fine water plant for any size of pool.
  • Spread 60-90 cm (24-36 in)
  • Planting depth 30-60cm (12-24in) of water above soil level
  • Position in full sun in still water.
  • We would recommend a planting basket of at least 22cm across.
  • Water lilies are heavy feeders and benefit from a slow release fertilizer specially prepared for aquatic plants such as Growth Balls which can simply be pushed into the soil.
  • Product Code: NW090
  • We ship all lilies bare root, this means that we wash the soil off before packing plants. During the summer months we may need to trim some of the foliage back for shipping.
