Quick Overview:

Soft peach blossoms are a delicate blend of pink and yellow. An outstanding bloomer.  Want to fill your pond with lots of flowers all season long? Then Mangkala Ubol is the waterlily for you.This Thai cultivar opens its peachy blooms in the very early spring and continues to flower through late fall. The blooms span about 4 to 6 inches across and stand on a backdrop of dark green leaves speckled with burgundy.


Easily grown in wet soil in still water in full sun to part shade. Full sun may be best, but plants will usually flower with as little as three hours of sun per day. Plant rhizomes horizontally in spring with bud end up in containers submerged in ponds or water gardens where the water is 12-48″ deep. When planted in containers, plants can be more easily moved later on if desired. Rhizomes may be planted directly in the muddy bottom of a pond.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Gardens Plant Finder)
