Just thought I'd post some photos of waterlilies flowering now for me. The first is a night flowerer. Because we've had overcast and rainy weather the past couple of days it's been staying open a lot longer. The other is a day flowerer, so it hasn't been overly happy with the overcast weather. But today looks like being it's turn.
Thanks Carolyn. The colour and shading is so delicate, but they love the full hot sun.
Your lillies are just beautiful. I agree with Carolyn #3 is really dainty looking and such beautiful colors.
I ordered my lilies and marginals from TWL yesterday. Dusty said he would hold my order til May 1. I told him I had no way to keep them before that but didn't want to face sold out's on what I wanted by waiting. They are so very accommodating.
Thanks Southgal, it's a very prolific night flowerer, that one. The closest I came to a name for it was Nymphaea "H.C.Haarstick".
You are very welcome.To me the dark bright color flowers just stands out more on the lily pads.Like the first pic,the color really stands out.Cool name!!!
Cody, what plant is your Avatar? I am working on a living wreath made from succulents, hens and chicks etc. Really love that one. My pond is a mess, too many frogs and tadpoles, no fish so far. I hope the raccoons and herons left me some. I have a water lily that is hardy that looks like the bright pink, it's Mayla.
Hi Mittsy,thanks..They call it a ghost plant.I am not sure if that is the only name for it or not.They do good outside all year around.Mine is in a pot though,because it grows long stems.The good thing about this plant is when one of the leave looking things fall off,all you have to do is just lay it in the pot and it will root on its on.Also you dont have to water them that much.Mittsy,i don't know how they would grow in the ground.I have only seem them in pots.Please post pic when you are done.Sounds like a neat fun project.
