Barbara Dobbins Water Lily Nymphaea ‘Barbara Dobbins’ - 3L Pot

The beautifully ethereal Barbara Dobbins water lily is a delicate damsel with endurance. Despite the ghostly feminine shades which colour her petals, the Barbara Dobbins is a hardy little water lily, more than capable of surviving harsh winters, and churning out continuous breath-taking bloom from May to October. This small lily can spread to around 1.5m, making it perfect for medium to larger ponds. Its mesmerising flowers poke 16cm out from the surface of the water and deliver a pleasant scent. Plant ideally in the spring and in 45-90cm of water in a spot where the flowers can enjoy at least 6-8 hours of sunshine.
