Water Lily Hybrid Nymphaea Gypsy


Nymphaea Gypsy is a hardy water lily hybrid, a crossing between Nymphaea Red Conqueror and Nymphaea mexicana. The water lily hybrid has been developed by the American waterlily enthusiast and breeder Dr. Robert Kirk Strawn (1922-2008) in the year 1997.

Flowers of Nymphaea Gypsy get a size of 10-12 cm in diameter and stand about 5 cm above water surface. Flowering period: Summer - Autumn. The stunnig water lily hybrid, with its bright red, white pigmented flowers, requires full sun and a pond with a water depth of about 40 - 60 cm. Like the most water lilies, Nymphaea Gypsy should be regularly fertilized, at least once a month. The most easy way to keep water lilies strong and healthy is to use water lily fertilizer tablets, which are put in the soil nearby the roots.
