The name of the genus Nymphaea comes from the Greek "nymphaia" (from the nymph), as in mythology the gods transformed a nymph into one of these aquatic plants. It comprises about 50 species of rhizomatous aquatic plants, most of which are native to the tropical areas of the Northern Hemisphere. 

The plant has the common names of water lily, water lily, water lily, water lily, water lily, water lily, water lily, water lily, water lily, water lily, water lily, water lily and water lily.

The water lily has round leaves with a cut to the centre of the leaf (where the petiole is located) and are usually bright green on top and reddish on the underside; they are protected from the water by a layer of wax and can float in the water or protrude from the water by up to 20 cm. The beautiful flowers arise from stalks that raise them above the water by a few centimetres.

They have many petals that decrease in size as they approach the centre of the flower and can be white, yellow, pink, violet, red, sky blue or purple. They flower in summer.

This plant is used in ponds planted directly on the bottom (if in soil) or in submerged pots. Water lilies are a plant that needs full sun exposure.

The ideal soil for these plants would be, together with a good supply of organic fertiliser, a mixture of 1/3 leaf mould with coarse sand, 1/3 garden soil and 1/3 peat. Planting should take place in the middle of the spring season.

The water should always be clean and at the same level. When flowering is finished in the autumn season, the pond should be cleaned and the plants should be kept in submerged pots.

In summer, the plant can be pruned by removing the smallest or damaged leaves and faded flowers to encourage flowering.

It is advisable to fertilise annually in autumn with manure when the pond is emptied. It is important that the sand is placed on top of the soil to prevent the water from becoming muddy when the pond is refilled in spring.

They are susceptible to attack by a pest called black louse. They can be propagated in spring by division of the rhizomes and it is advisable to wait at least 3 years for each division.
