How do I care for Alba rubra red water lilies?

Although related to N.Alba, unexpectantly the flower has a lovely, dark red centre with lighter petals to the outer edge. The flowers are surrounded by prolific green foliage. Plant in still water away from splashing fountains. Lower gradually so the leaves can stretch to the surface within a few days. Remove dead leaves and flowers during the growing season. Suitable for full sun only.

Please note: Due to the seasonal nature of pond plants, we reserve the right to swap the plants in your order with a similar species.
