Nymphaea ‘Albida’, a spring water planted tuber, produces beautiful white ornamental lily-like flowers. It is a great white lily which can be used as a substitute for the larger Alba water lily in smaller ponds. Water Lily Albida lives in water that is rich in oxygen and receives a lot of sunlight; these plants have adapted to living in a total water environment. When the water gets too cool the plant will enter a dormant state. Water Lily Albida does best in full sun and should be fertilized regularly during warms months.
