'Black Princess' is one of the most sought-after and highly-prized hardy waterlilies, only seen occasionally. It is a highly unusual colour - as the plant matures the double-petalled blooms become a darker and darker red until they are almost totally black. Added to this, it is free-flowering and produces blooms all summer long. The foliage is also attractive, with new leaves opening a deep burgundy colour, making a really eye-catching and unusual plant.
We recommend starting your Nymphaea 'Black Princess' off in a pot of 3 litres capacity. Read more on how to pot and care for your plant here.
