Yellow water-lily yellow

Nuphar lutea
For the large pond
It looks like a big buttercup! Large, round leaves with cheerful, yellow flowers. The yellow water-lily (Nuphar lutea) adds that something special to any large pond. The flowers taste bitter, so fish will leave the yellow water-lily alone. Plant the waterside plant in the spring. The flower blossoms in the summer.
We maintain a planting depth of 40 to 120 cm. A location in full sun is best for this aquatic plant. We supply the plant with a pond basket.

Seasonal effects 

The appearance of water plants changes between seasons. From a bare plant lying dormant in winter to fresh greenery in spring, in full bloom during summer to leaves changing colour and dropping in autumn. This is a natural process courtesy of mother nature. Our plants will be delivered accordingly.

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).
