Hi, all. This is my first post in this forum. I have Nymphaea Fabiola in a couple of ponds. It is a very good 'doer'.
I'm looking for a tropical waterlily with a purple/lavender flower and purple-mottled leaves for a tub garden. I plan to overwinter it indoors.
I would so appreciate any suggestions and advice.
TIA, Kyle.

Bagdad and Evelyn Randig would be my suggestions. I've never grown Evelyn Randig, but have Bagdad. It's a very good performer.

Bagdad seems perfect. Do any of you overwinter tropical waterlilies indoors? I'd like to know how.
