Nymphaea 'Vesuve'

These aquatic plants are prized for their star-shaped, semi-double flowers which bloom in many colors. Flowers and large leaves float on or rise just above the surface of water. Need full sun to bring out their gorgeous blooms. Plant easy-to-grow, hardy varieties where freezing winters kill the tender tropical varieties. Plant rhizomes on the surface of soil, 8 to 12 inches below the waterline, in a pond or container.
Nymphaea
It is considered by many to be one of the best water lily hybrids ever for its prolific production of fragrant flowers, which open early in the day and stay open later than most, and for its long blooming season. Good for any size pool.
