Nymphaea 'Empress'


Tropical waterlilies are usually grown in the warmer climate area and requires at least 5-6 hours of sunlight per day and flowers between December and late May in Australia. There are two types: day flowering/blooming waterlilies and night flowering/blooming waterlilies. Water lilies will NOT grow well in ponds/water features where there is fast moving or splashing water on their leaves. Should given some fertiliser tablets during their growing months in Spring and Summer to encourage flowering (especially when they are growing in pots). Sold in the form of barerooted plants or sprouted corms. (NOTE: Some older/vintage cultivars and species are no longer listed for sale on our website, but are still available sometimes upon request.) Can be grown in temperate and sub-tropical areas throughout NSW, Victoria, Queensland (including tropical regions), SA, WA and NT.

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