Nymphaea 'Albert Greenburg'

Common Name(s):

Description

Water lilies are a group of plants containing about 70 known species. They are either tropical or hardy and grow in water 3 inches to 2 foot deep. The spread is variable from 2 foot to about 12 foot. Larger plants need larger water gardens or ponds. Short ones do well growing in containers. They prefer non-moving water without fountains or currents. Most prefer full sun but some will tolerate some shade. The flowers are showy and usually fragrant with showy lily pads for leaves. Viviparous water lilies form plantlets attached to the mother plant.

'Albert Greenberg' is a tropical water lily and suited for medium to large water gardens. It is free-flowering, non-viviparous and blooms late into the season. Leaves are up to 19 inches and the large flowers are very showy. Spread 5-8 feet.
