Aquatic Native Plants: Water Lilies
We sell two water lily varieties native to the UK as plants in generous 3 litre pots. They'll root themselves in deeper water - 0.5 - 1m - and will spread vigorously, so really best suit bigger ponds or lakes. The most vigorous of all is Nuphar lutea, which will thrive down to 1.5m. The white lily has a more traditional lily flower. Both types are helpful in covering the water surface and preventing algal growth.
