The water lily Nymphaea ‘Irene Heritage’, is a medium plant with rose red flowers. Suitable for medium pools. This rare waterlily was hybridized by Perry D. Slocum in the USA in 1988. It was a chance seedling of Nymphaea ‘Atropurpurea’.  Named after the wife of late British water gardening author Bill Heritage.

Water depth: 25-50cm (measured from the growing point of the plant)

Spread: This variety should have an ultimate spread of 80cm (2.5ft) once established.

Flowering time: June to September.

Planting time: Plant rhizomes should be potted during the growing season only, in the spring and summer. For this variety of waterlily we would recommend planting your rhizome into a 3.5L planting crate.

Aspect: Position in full sun, ideally with a minimum of 6 hours of sunshine each day.

Hardiness: Fully hardy, grown outdoors in our lily ponds.

We only sell healthy rhizomes with a productive crown. These should flower the same year as planting when following our instructions on caring for your water plants. Before posting your plant we wash off any soil and weeds attached to the rhizome, ensure there is no damage to emerging buds and leaves, and trim off any old growth.
