Almost Black Water Lily (Nymphaea Almost Black)
The Almost Black Water Lily has fantastic dark red blooms which measure 15 to 17cms (6 to 7 inches) across. The flowers are cup-like in shape becoming flatter and darker in colour with age with a pleasant fragrance. Yellow / orange / red centres. This is one of our favourite water lilies which we would highly recommend.
- The flowers are complimented by dark reddish leaves which emerge purple in colour and then turn green. The underside of the leaves are reddish purple and they have prominent green veins.
- This is a small to medium lily and therefore makes a great addition to any size of pond.
- Planting depth above soil level 20-90cms (8-36ins)
- Position in full sun in still water.
- Provides cover and shade for aquatic wildlife.
- Spread 150cms (60ins)
- 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.
- We ship all lilies bareroot, 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.
