Madame Wilfron Gonnere water lily (Nymphaea ‘Madame Wilfron Gonnere’) bears large, heavily petaled flowers which are deep pink in the centre and paler pink at the edge. The peony style flowers measure 5in ( 13 cm) across. Madame Wilfron Gonnere water lilies are popular because they produce plenty of blooms every year. Suitable for any sized pool.
The leaves are green with new leaves being slightly bronzed. In the early spring the leaves display an attractive broad, yellow, lengthwise stripe on top which then disappears when the warmer weather arrives.
