MURASAKI SHIKIBU, or Black Beauty, is a dazzling and delightful tiny TAIWANISE bowl waterlily that will captivate you with its beauty. This enchanting waterlily is perfect for container gardens, whiskey barrel liners, small ponds, and other small water garden features.
MURASAKI SHIKIBU is a superb bloomer and will bring a burst of color and charm to your water garden. This cheerful waterlily requires only 3 feet of space and 36 inches of width, making it an excellent choice for those with limited space.
To ensure that your MURASAKI SHIKIBU thrives, plant it in an 8" pot with 2 fertilizer tablets twice a month (on the 1st and 15th of the month) in full sun. It is essential to remember that the water lily requires direct sunlight to flower. If grown in the shade, it will not bloom and will not grow inside a home or apartment.
For best results, plant your MURASAKI SHIKIBU 4 to 12 inches deep in your pond or water garden. The flowers of this stunning waterlily are 1.5 to 3.5 inches in diameter, and they will grow larger as the plant grows.
Pond Megastore is proud to offer MURASAKI SHIKIBU as a LIVE water lily plant during the spring and summer months each year. Get your hands on this incredible waterlily and bring the beauty and magic of the Far East to your water garden today!
