Nymphaea 'Fabiola' (Aquatic) (Hardy Waterlily) - This waterlily has green leaves with bronzy new growth and 6 to 7 inch wide peony to cup shaped flowers that are a clear pink with good fragrance. The plant will spread 2 to 4 feet across. This waterlily is very free flowering and is perfect for medium to large pools. It takes full sun and is hardy to 15 degrees F. Much confusion exists regarding synonyms for this plant and we are not absolutely sure of the true identity of our plant. Fabiola is an old waterlily cultivar that was hybridized in 1913 ( (Latour-Marliac) and sold in England for many years but synonyms that have apparently been misapplied include Nymphaea 'Mrs. Richmond' (Latour-Marliac, 1910) and the cultivar 'Odorata Luciana' (Dreer, c.1899) also known as 'Luciana' and 'Pink Beauty', have been sold as 'Fabiola' for many years in the US. We first purchased our plants in 1988 from McAllister Water Gardens.  Information displayed on this page about  Nymphaea 'Fabiola' (Aquatic) is based on the research conducted about it in our library and from reliable online resources. We also note those observations we have made of this plant as it grows in the nursery's garden and in other gardens, as well how crops have performed in our nursery field. We will incorporate comments we receive from others, and welcome to hear from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they share any cultural information that would aid others in growing it.
