Black Princess Waterlily is an exquisite and unusual water lily with a regal appearance.   A beautiful way to add drama to your water garden setting! Black Princess Hardy Waterlily has spectacular, 4 - 6 inch blooms with exotic, dark-red petals that appear almost black on this royal specimen.
The magnificent blooms on Black Princess Hardy Waterlily are drenched in rich shades of merlot. 
This is a medium size water lily with a 4 - 6 foot spread.
Black Princess is a good bloomer in cool and temperate conditions with goblet-shaped flowers and red pads that mature to green. In excessive heat over 95 or 100 degrees for many days in a row, she may stop blooming for a period. 
Always a customer favorite!

Plant in a large (2 gallons or larger) container or large planting bag, using heavy loam soil, and place 6 - 24 inches beneath the surface of the water in full sun (5+ hours of sun per day).  
Waterlilies are Heavy Feeders!

Fertilizing Instructions

Fertilize with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs + Humates, for optimum growth and best blooming every 2-3 weeks through spring and summer!

Use 3 to 4 tablets for water lilies every two weeks; we suggest the 1st and 15th of each month for optimal and continuous flowering until fall! Remember, lilies also like full, direct, unobstructed sunlight as much of the day as possible and regular dividing at the root as needed. Any cramped pots will lessen the blooming of waterlilies. A 15" fabric aquatic growpot with handles is suggested for any medium or large waterlily. The 7.5-inch pots are okay for up to 8 months of growth for smaller waterlilies. 

PondGro Aquatic Soil is perfect for those who do not have access to plain good topsoil for their waterlilies. We never suggest aquatic planting media, pea gravel, or other stones for pond plants. You will end up with lots of mortality and plants that never perform. Only plain sifted Topsoil should ever be used for waterlilies; it can have a heavy sand base or clay base but should not include organic compost, so never buy anything bagged as that always has compost added, which floats and rots. 

For in-ground ponds with no liner, these, again, prefer full sun. Best anchored into the embankment soil just 6 to 10 inches below the waterline when planted. Consider temporary fencing for 6 to 10 weeks when establishing in existing ponds with wildlife so that plants can get ahead of any plant predators like raccoons, turtles, etc.
