Is there a good online source for IDing tropical water lilies?
Over a year ago I put a tropical waterlily in the basement to over winter, well then I found out we were moving to another state. SO I left it in the basement and left it for dead. Well the movers packed it, and I found it, dumped it out in the garden and found not just one but 4 divisions!(there were 5 but my puppy grabbed one and shook to pieces before I could save it). So I seperated them and replanted them and put them in a water pot. I now would like to figure out who it is , I forgot the name I know it is blue and viviporous. Has spotted leaves also.

Anyone have an idea? I don't have any pictures of it blooming.

Sounds perhaps like Tina or Panama Pacific.

No picture, I can take one of the very tiny plants, but I don't have a picture of the flowers, They are a bright blue with yellow center.

Thanks Merry Mary I will look up those cultivars and see if the descriptions match what I have. Since I thought it was dead I threw away any reference to it. And didn't think I would be growing anymore. What I get for thinking...
