Overview

Think pink for blossoms that are twice as nice. The hardy Madame Wilfron Gonnere Water Lily doubles your viewing pleasure with gorgeous double blossoms in a gentle pink coloration. These voluptuous pink and white bicolor blossoms are peony-like in appearance and bloom freely throughout the height of summer and into late autumn. The hardy Madame Wilfron Gonnere Water Lily produces an abundance of blossoms sure to add elegant charm to any pond, water garden, or container water garden.

Even when it's not in bloom, the Madame Wilfron Gonnere Water Lily provides fantastic visual interest with its ornamental, saucer-like leaves or "pads." Interestingly, the color of the leaves will vary considerably depending on its age. New or younger pads have a chocolate-bronze coloration that gradually develops into a beautiful bright green coloration. Typical of hardy water lilies, the Madame Wilfron Gonnere Water Lily produces round leaves with smooth edges. The leaf spread (or the amount of water surface area covered by the leaves) is approximately 4 to 6 ft providing much needed shade and protection for your pond fish, as well as a potential spawning site for pondlife.

The Madame Wilfron Gonnere Water Lily should be potted in a two-gallon or larger planting container. To help your newly potted water lily establish itself faster in your pond, place the water lily at an initial depth of six inches below the water surface. As the water lily grows, it can be gradually lowered to its ideal depth of 12-18 inches below the water surface. The Madame Wilfron Gonnere Water Lily does best in sunny conditions where it receives six or more hours of direct sunlight. Zones 4-11.
