Gloire de Temple-sur-Lot water lily

Gloire de Temple-sur-Lot water lily (N. ‘Gloire de Temple-sur-Lot’) is a very special lily with fragrant double flowers that are a delicate pink at first lightening over the life of the flower. The blooms are like a double chrysanthemum with a hundred and twenty eight or nine petals surrounding the yellow centre, they measure 5-6 in (13-15 cm) across.  A truly show stopper of a lily and a very good addition to your pond or lake not only is it beautiful but will add a natural habitat for aquatic wildlife.

  • The new leaves are brown with an orange spot in the centre, they then mature to green. Round in shape with lobes that overlap completely at the sinus the leaves measure 10 in (25 cm) across.
  • Spread 48-60 in (120-150 cm)
  • These are large water lilies and therefore are best in a large pool or a natural ponds.
  • Planting depth 12-30in (30-75 cm) of water above soil level.
  • Position in full sun in still water.
  • We would recommend a planting basket of a minimum 22cm across but preferably larger.
  • 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: NP050
  • 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.
