    An elegant water lily with a ruff of sweetly scented rose-pink single flowers from June to September among a floating carpet of dark green leaves. The petals of this fragrant water lily gradually fade to pale pink. Best planted at a depth of 40-75cm (16-30in) it's a perfect choice for a small or medium-sized pond. The shade cast by the foliage also helps to check the spread of algae.
  • Garden care: Plant firmly in a hessian-lined aquatic planting basket filled with aquatic compost. Apply a 2.5cm (1in) top-dressing of pea shingle or gravel to prevent the top layer of the planting medium from clouding the water. The crown of the plant should protrude slightly above the surface of the planting basket. Raise the basket on bricks when the plant is young gradually lowering them as the plant matures so that the leaves float on the surface.
