Nymphaea "Burgundy Princess" is one of the most beautiful red water lilies. This small hybrid is suitable for the small to medium-sized pond. The medium-sized, rounded leaves first appear olive green and then turn dark green during the season. This water lily blooms from June to September, with small, slightly scented, cup-shaped, red to purple-red flowers with a yellow center and the diameter of the flower is approx. 5 to 10 cm. As soon as the flower has finished flowering, the seeds sink to the bottom. Nymphaea "Burgundy Princess" prefers a position in full sun, a water depth of 0.20 to 0.60 meters and a nutrient-rich soil. The plant is very hardy, attracts butterflies, bees and other insects, tolerates sea wind and light brackish water and is also tolerant to air pollution.
