I need HELP with ID

Indianapolis, IN(Zone 5b)

My waterlilies froze and died this winter. I need help to ID the ones that I liked so that I can replace them.

This lily is small, with flowers about 3 inches. This is a first year plant, and it blooms like crazy.
It is in this pond with the light blue tropical, Dauben.

This is another one I need an ID for.
It is very small. I'm growing it in a container with a surface about 18" diameter. It may be a sport of Helvola.

Hello, I'm of no help with ID, but would like to ask a question regarding your tub, how deep is it? I'd like to try something like this. Thank you..

Hey, that's beautiful! Maybe you should post this same question on the plant I.D. forum. Sorry I can't help with that. Lovely garden, though!

Yes, It is beautiful, I got so caught up in the idea of a dish pond (if that is what you call it) that I forgot to mention how nice it looks.

I have a water lily that looks like yours. It's a carolina water lily. Your tropical would be a Mexican Petunia or Mexican Ruellia which ever you prefer to call it.

Would you identify the other plants in your little pond? (the ones you know?) Because I am very curious, I'm new to (water) gardening! I would greatly appreciate that!

Thanks for your help!

The pond is preformed plastic, about 3 feet across and 18 inches deep. I have 3 of them set up, and would get a 4th one if I could find one. I got them at Lowe's. It has 3 built-in shelves for the marginal plants, which are in 1 gallon pots.

Plant Identification, around the pond:
12:00 Dauben blue tropical waterlily
2:00 Aquatic mint
8:00 Pink Bells, or ruellia
10:00 Water Hyacinth, floating
11:00 Variegated water celery

I move around a lot and usually live in rented houses. For some strange reason, most landlords do not want their entire yard dug up for a pond. (I think that it's a wonderful idea.) So, I have a lot of miniponds that are portable.

Very pretty. I have one in ground but keep one on my porch. Just love them.

I believe that the small lily in #1 is Aurora and that the second lily is Berit Strawn

Deer Park, IL(Zone 5b)

Would you like a small yellow one? I just redid my pond and removed most of my shelve space and have this very little yellow water lily that if I remember right it had "Mexican" in it's name. What is the tall spikey plant with the light blue flower?

Dolores, CO(Zone 5b)

Very pretty "dish pond"! You might consider contacting Texas Water Lilies and emailing them pictures of the lilies you want to replace, they are excellent in every way, price, quality, customer service. Tell them you're a member of DG and you might get a discount. I think the tall plant with the blue-ish flower is ruellia.
