The leaves provide a landing pad for thirsty honeybees, while offerering shelter for aquatic wildlife beneath the surface. Water lily leaves also help suppress the growth of algae in summer. For best results grow Nymphaea ‘Hermine’ in full sun and allow the plant to spread. Remember that water lilies thrive in still water, so avoid growing near a fountain or pump.
