Plant details

Lily varieties for medium-sized and large ponds are very extensive and varied. They all share the ability to survive the hardest winter weather with their rhizomes safely below the level of the ice. All varieties need still water and a sunny position, with room to spread. Gonnere' has young leaves which are bronze and white, fragrant flowers. It has been given an Award of Garden Merit (AGM), which is for plants of outstanding excellence.
