White Pond Lily

White Pond Lily

Starting at: $20.80

An aquatic perennial. The small-branched rootstock produces large orbicular, entire leaves that float on the surface of the water.They are dark green on top, and purplish underneath. The large, many-petaled, white flowers bloom in the afternoon each day, above the water, for only 3 days. Found in eastern North America in wet places, ponds and slow streams.

Traditionally it is a antiseptic, astringent, and demulcent. A tea made from the fresh root is used for a gargle, an eyewash, vaginal douche, and to heal sores. The root and leaves are made into poultices for cuts, bruises or into a lotion for smooth, soft skin. Steep 1 teaspoon of the herb in 1 cup water, 30 minutes. Take 1/4 cup, 3-4 times a day. Do not mistake it for Nymphaea tuberosa, a toxic water lily, distinguished by its tuberous rootstock and almost odorless flowers.
