Arc-en-Ciel water lily (Nymphaea ‘Arc-en-Ciel’)

Arc-en-Ciel water lily (Nymphaea ‘Arc-en-Ciel‘) has delicate flowers which are almost white with the faintest of pink blush and also has magnificent leaves which are olive green with pink, red, cream and pale-yellow speckles and blotches. Flowers, in the form of an open stellate (star like) cup of eighteen to twenty-four, slim petals with a deep yellow centre, measure 13-15 cm (5-6 in). Larger blooms also have a pronounced sweet scent.
The leaves which reach 9.5 in (24 cm) across are round with a wide-open sinus.

  • Spread 48-60in (120-150cm)
  • Suitable for medium and large pools.
  • Planting depth above soil level 30in (75cm)
  • 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: NW020
  • We ship all water lilies bare root; this means that we wash the soil off before packing the plants. During the summer months we may need to trim some of the foliage back for shipping.
