Nymphaea candida (Aquatic) (Hardy Waterlily) - This hardy waterlily was first described in 1822. Found throughout the regions of Kashmir, Kazakhstan, Russia (Siberia); SW Asia and into Europe. White flowers with ovate-oblong petals numbering 20-25 on each flower appear from May to September. Place in full sun for best results. Fertilize throughout the flowering season for optimum growth. Pads reach out to 3-5 feet across making this a perfect choice for small to medium size ponds. Our thanks to Lotusland for introducing us to this species.  The information on this page is based on research conducted in our nursery library and from online sources as well as from observations made of this plant as it grows in our nursery, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens that we have visited. We have also incorporated comments received from others and always appreciate getting feedback of any kind from those who have some additional information, particularly if this information is contrary to what we have written or includes additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing  Nymphaea candida.
