Description

Nymphaea Colonel A J Welch | Water Lily 3 Ltr

Waterlilies prefer calm, still water, away from fountains, pumps, cascades or other turbulence. Plant Nymphaea Colonel A J Welch water lilies in full sun to promote flowering. They are best planted in aquatic compost, or heavy clay-based loam, in an aquatic basket. Canary-yellow flowers stand above the water. The foliage is very prolific, though the plant is not particularly free-flowering. Over time, it can grow into water up to 3 metres. It is classed as Viviparous as it occasionally grows new plants from its leaf stems.

Nymphaea Colonel A J Welch Water Lily are an excellent choice of pond plant for any size of pond. Plant N. Colonel A J Welch Water Lily in still water away from splashing fountains. Lower the water lily gradually so the leaves can stretch to the surface within a few days. Remove dead leaves and flowers during the growing season.

Lily spread and planting depths are provided as a guide only, with the depth being the amount of water above the crown. In shallow water excessive leaf growth will rise above the surface and reduce flower blooms. The leaves of lilies shade the pond providing shelter for fish from predators such as herons, and reducing sunlight exposure to prevent algae growth.

How do you look after water lilies in the winter?
For hardy water lily plants, the key to over-wintering water lilies like the Nymphaea Colonel A J Welch Water Lily is to move them to the deepest part of your pond. This will insulate the water lilly plant a little from repeated freezing and thawing which limit your water lily's chance of surviving the cold.
