Pure as the driven snow, this crisp white waterlily makes a great addition to any pond or container garden. Virginalis has white cup-shaped blooms that span about 4 to 6 inches across and stand against a backdrop of dark green leaves.
Virginalis is one of the many waterlily varieties created by French botanist Joseph Latour-Marliac, whose flowers inspired the likes of painter Claude Monet. Latour-Marliac first hybridized Virginalis in 1910. Its reputation as a dependable bloomer has since made it a staple in many water gardens.
