Red & Crimson Hardy Waterlilies

These red/crimson coloured waterlilies are suitable for medium to larger ponds or even farm dams. They require a much larger water surface area for their leaf spread, hence, coverage is more when compared with small/miniature size waterlilies. Growth tip of the plant could be submerged between 20cms to 40cms below the water surface. Any deeper than 40cms the plant may not flower or grow properly.

Planting instructions is available for download here. Don't forget to include fertiliser tablets in your plantings.
