Large water lily with pads from 15 to 20 cm in diameter, and 15 cm flowers.
'Goliath', aptly named, is a giant of a pink lily that will garner much praise in the water garden.
This variety rose to prominence in 1913 when it was the subject of litigation between Latour-Marliac and his primary competitor of the day, Lagrange. The latter had apparently been selling some other lily as Latour-Marliac's 'Goliath.' Frustrated with nurseries that weren't selling true to name, Latour-Marliac took Lagrange to court and won.
