Sibley Victoria Pool
Experience the beauty and magnitude of the world’s largest water lily. Fairchild is the only garden in the U.S. to feature Victoria water lilies outdoors
Here, among the various water lilies, we experience the majesty of the Victoria cruziana and the Victoria ‘Longwood Hybrid’. These plants are native to South America and their leaf span is from 12 to 40 inches. Their flowers bloom white the first day, pink the second and die off the third.
Since the Victoria water lilies only grow in very warm weather, with lots of sun and very warm water, they are considered an annual in most climates. The Victoria Pool holds gigantic water lilies with leaves two feet across.
