    Am trying to decide if these are different from ‘Water Lily’ – I have never come across WL listed as C pleniflorum, but it is equally multi-petalled. Do you know if it is different?

      Hi
      I thought I had bought C. Nancy Lindsay but having posted a pic on FB a week ago I was advised by John Grimshaw that it wasnt and was either Waterlily or autumnale. As Waterlily is early flowering in his view it was probably autumnale.

      Hope that helps – personally I am miffed its not Nancy Lindsay as thats what I wanted 😦

      Thanks Helen – yes, my Water Lily was over several weeks ago so that puzzled me a little. Where do you buy yours from? Would you be able to get redress from them is this isn’t Nancy Lindsay after all? Having googled NL I can see she is not as multi-petalled

    3. Helen Johnstone says:

      It was at a show where they had boxes of corms so it may be that someone put the wrong corm back in the box so I will leave it and try again but maybe by mail order so will have redress if happens again
