White Water Lily Overview
These plants are easily identified by their large, white flowers and round, glossy leaves which float on the water's surface. The leaves that remain below the surface are reddish. This plant is often found in the wild in Northern Europe.
How to propagate White Water Lily
You can divide the tuber-like rhizomes and then replant in spring or summer every 3 or 4 years.
If you grow them in cooler areas, the tubers of tropical waterlilies should be lifted and stored in moist sand over the winter.
You can propagate from seeds.
