Marliacea Carnea Water Lily
The faint blush pink of the flowers look almost white on first glance. The faint pink flowers are 4-5 inches wide, the leaves are 7-8 inches wide, and the overall plant spread is 4-5 feet.
Blooming from June to September, the showy, vanilla-scented, semi-double, pale pink flowers with golden-yellow centers are a colorful addition to any pond
This outstanding ‘Marliacea Carnea’ water lily is suited to any size pond, particularly medium to large ponds. It even tends to bloom in partially shaded ponds! It needs plenty of space to grow, so makes an excellent choice for a lake or large, deep, wildlife pond.
Its dark green leaves create a shady underwater habitat for native fish and amphibians.
This free-flowering variety was hybridized by Latour-Marliac Nurseries in 1880, and it is still considered one of their finest creations.
We recommend growing this water lily in a 7.5 quart or larger container (available from naturehills.com). Also available from naturehills.com is Aquatic Planting Media and Lilytabs Water Lily Fertilizer. Cannot be shipped to: CA, MT, OR, WA or WY, AK or HI.
