Nymphaea ‘Rose Arey’ Delicious, aniseed-scented, deep rose-pink flowers up to 20cm (8in) across with long, pointed petals from June to September. This elegant water lily forms a floating carpet of rounded, bronze-green leaves, purplish-crimson when young.
This is a strikingly pretty water lily whose distinctively rounded pink petals are progressively lighter at the outer edges. The cup-shaped flowers are surrounded by rich green foliage, making a strong statement in the pond.
This lily, named ‘Gloire of Le Temple sur Lot’ after the village here, was a sensation when it was introduced in 1913. The few other ruffly doubles that exist today wouldn’t come along for another 70 years. This variety is also one of a handful that send up both pure white and pure pink flowers.
