        Nymphaea ‘ Mayla ‘ Pink Lily

Nymphaea ‘ Mayla ‘ Pink Lily.   Wonderful bursts of petals that are fuchsia pink throughout. Flower shape is a like a star and wide open.  It has a  fragrance that is strong and is very free flowering.  We feel that this is an attractive eye catching plant.  Lily’s provide surface cover on your pond which  helps to control algae.  Lily’s are beneficial to aquatic wildlife with the pads providing cover and resting areas.

  • Because water lilies are heavy feeders consequently they 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 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.
