White Lily Plant

White Water Lilly (lily) is a deciduous, aquatic, perennial plant with strikingly attractive flowers large cup-shaped white petals, and a yellow centre that bloom continuously and sit above richly mottled pads. They can’t see much beneath the water; the whole beauty is all on the surface. With only a few straggly stems emerging from a pot, the blossoms are absolutely symmetrical. The leaves are perfectly symmetrical circles with a notched “V” where they connect to the stems. 

The flowers are 7.5-12.5 cm in diameter and have multiple broad, tapering petals that thin in the centre. Petals have a tiny channel running through them. One pistil is present in the centre, which is densely packed with bright yellow stamens. The leaves are heart-shaped and generally rounded, with a width of 10-30 cm. The upper side is glossy green and water repellent. It has a purplish-red underside.

Their abundance benefits the ecosystem significantly. They provide both aquatic and non-aquatic species with food and shelter. Lily pads are vital food sources for beaver, some insect species, and pollinators, as well as supplying fish with shelter. During the day, Nymphaea ‘Midnight’ produces petite, mildly fragrant lavender blooms. The plants have a 4–6-foot spread.



Alterative, anodyne, antiseptic, astringent, and demulcent are all properties of the root.

TB, persistent bronchial problems, diarrhea, dysentery, gastrointestinal inflammation, gonorrhoea, vaginal discharge, swollen glands, mouth sores, and stopping bleeding are all treated with root tea.

A complete cure of uterine cancer has been documented with a decoction and uterine injection.

Boils, tumours, vaginitis, scrofulous ulcers, and inflamed skin have all been treated with a poultice made from the leaves and roots.

For mouth and throat ulcers, an infusion is used as a gargle.



While the majority of water lilies are grown outside, tiny kinds can be grown in containers indoors. The keys to success are plenty of light, enough water, and keeping the water relatively clean.

Make sure your waterlily gets plenty of sun—at least four hours, but preferably six or more. White Water Lilies will not bloom unless they receive six hours of daily sunlight.
