Plant the yellow water lily (Nuphar lutea) rhizome horizontally in a spacious pond basket filled with a special water lily soil (first line the basket with sacking). Put the yellow water lily into the basket and fill up with soil. Fold the extra sacking over the top and cover with a layer of gravel. Plant your yellow water lily at the correct depth in a sunny spot in your pond for a rich bloom. Part shade will also be tolerated.
In autumn, remove the wilted and dead leaves of the yellow water lily from the pond. To prevent freezing over the winter put the basket with the yellow water lily (Nuphar lutea) at a minimum depth of 40 cm. If the lily tends to spread and get out of hand, dig the whole thing up in May and divide the thick rhizome into smaller parts with a sharp knife. Replant just one or two of the best pieces.
Nuphar lutea (yellow water lily) has such lovely yellow petals very much like the buttercup, which appear continually from June through to September! The fertilised flowers form large, bottle-shaped seed pods which drop off, float away and disintegrate, thereby spreading their seed. The oval shaped leaves float on the water like water lilies.
Nuphar lutea is classified under the lily family (Nymphaeaceae).
