Product Overview

Nymphaea 'Black Princess' Red Hardy Waterlily

Black Princess is a truly magnificent lily for any water garden. In the peak of the growing season, the 5" - 6" flower darkens each day until it is a deep red. Parts of the petals will become such a deep red that they will appear black. This is especially striking because the petals have a thick and waxy substance, and the center of the bloom is bright yellow, creating beautiful contrast. It was the best of several similar hybrids by Perry Slocum, which is why he chose to patent Black Princess over the others; only a handful of waterlilies have ever been patented, and the patent has now expired. Keep well fertilized for maximum blooming.

SIZE: LARGE: (3' to 6')
PLANTING CONTAINER: We recommend a 2 gallon solid planting container or a medium planting bag.
WATER DEPTH: 6" TO 36" (Maximum water depth is for mature water lilies)

Waterlilies are shipped bare root and will require planting upon arrival.
