Description

The water lily Nymphaea ‘James Brydon’ is an excellent variety with cup-shaped deep pink flowers. Admittedly not the first to bloom but when it does is spectacular in the quantity of blooms that contrast well with the burgundy coloured leaves. Succeeds in minimum of sun where many lilies would fail. Suitable for small to medium pools. An old waterlily hybridised by William Dreer in the USA in 1900.

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

Spread: Nymphaea ‘James Brydon’ should have an ultimate spread of 60cm (2ft) 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 water lily rhizome into a 2L fine mesh planting basket.

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 do not “force” our waterlilies in greenhouses or polytunnels so they are fully hardy and ready to be planted out straight away.

Awards: RHS Award of Garden Merit.

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.

You can see this plant on display within the National Plant Collection® of Waterlilies at Bennetts Water Gardens.
