This very reliable lily is one of the most prolific varieties available, and its smaller size makes it a perfect choice for anything from a container garden to a small or medium-sized pond. Many growers feel this is the finest white hardy lily due to its freedom of bloom and always-dependable performance.

Paperwhite blooms. Goblet-shaped flowers of 4-5 inches. Large, virgin-white blooms on a medium plant. Possibly the finest white. Green leaves with a purple cast. Can grow to 4-8 feet wide in full sun in 6-48 inches of water. Profuse bloomer.

Hardy Waterlilies begin blooming in early to mid-spring and continue to bloom until early to late autumn. They are exceptionally vigorous plants and are quite easy to grow. Most significantly, hardy waterlilies can survive all but the coldest arctic winters, which is the single most important characteristic that distinguishes hardy lilies from their tropical cousins.

As a general rule, hardy waterlilies prefer 12-18 inches of water above their roots (unless otherwise noted) and most of them may be planted as deep as 24-30 inches of water above the roots. The rhizomes (roots) should be planted horizontally in containers at least 12 inches in diameter. In order for all waterlilies to bloom to their capacity, they must be placed in an area that receives full sunlight (at least 6 hours per day) throughout the growing season unless otherwise noted.

This plant is shipped as a bare root without soil or container.
