For the small pond

Have a small pond? Then the water-lily 'Pygmaea Alba' (Nymphaea) is ideal! The dwarf water-lily has white flowers with a yellow centre. It smells amazing in our pond! The leaves of the water lily provide a lot of shade for the fish in the water. That keeps algae at bay! Plant the water-lily in the spring. The flower blossoms in the summer.
We maintain a planting depth of 120 cm. We prune the plants slightly to shape them with a pruning shear. We remove old leaves and dirt. To encourage good growth, we add minerals to the pond water and ensure that the water's hardness level (pH value and calcium to magnesium ratio) is maintained. Put the lily in a sunny spot.
For fine colours and fragrances!

Planting

Plant the rhizome of the water lily in a horizontal manner in a large pond basket filled with special water lily soil. Line the basket with a piece of jute, place the water lily in the basket and fill with soil. Cover everything with the remaining jute and sprinkle with a layer of gravel. For a rich bloom, choose a sunny spot in the pond and place the basket at the correct depth. Light shade is also tolerated.

Care

In autumn, remove the dead leaves of the water lily from the pond. Place the basket at least 40 cm deep in winter in order to prevent freezing. Is the water lily too large? If so, in May you can dig up the roots and cut the thick rhizome with a knife into smaller pieces and replant them again.

Extra

Put one of the lily flowers in a vase so that you can continue to enjoy its delicious scent in the home!
Nymphaea has its own family, the lily family (Nymphaeaceae).
