Planting the World’s Largest Water Lily: Victoria amazonica

Posted in Horticulture on August 8 2019, by Matt Newman

Our giant water lilies (Victoria amazonica) are symbols of summer in the Conservatory Courtyard Pools, which you can currently see on view during our latest exhibition, Brazilian Modern: The Living Art of Roberto Burle Marx.
