Denver water lily (Nymphaea ‘Denver’)

The Denver water lily (Nymphaea ‘Denver’) has creamy white double blooms which give an outstanding display. The petal colour is a soft white with a hint of yellow and the centre of the flower is bright yellow in colour. The flowers are cup-like in shape and double with forty-six to forty-eight petals they measure (7.5-10 cm) across. They flower freely and also have a slight fragrance.

  • The variegated leaf is medium green with mottling towards the perimeter and the underside is reddish brown with green veins.
  • The leaves which measure 4-5in (10-12.5 cm) across are slightly ovate in shape and the lobes overlap each other creating good cover for aquatic wildlife.
  • Spread 36-48in (90-120cm)
  • We would recommend Denver water lilies as ideal for container pools and also for small to medium ponds.
  • Planting depth above soil level 12-24ins/30-60cms
  • 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: NW040
  • 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.
