Nymphaea alba needs the removal of dying flowers and foliage on a regular basis. A waterlily returns to a dormant state in winter with no leaf cover on the pond. Waterlilies (especially large growers like Nymphaea alba) are heavy feeders so would benefit from added fertilizer balls in Spring. A good plant for pollinating bees, hoverflies and butterflies when in flower in Summer.
