Nymphaea 'Isabelle Pring'

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 3 foot deep. The spread is variable from 2 foot to about 20 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.

'Isabelle Pring' is a tropical water lily with free-flowering large white blooms. It is viviparous and can be used in medium to large water gardens.
