Acquired this plant this year and is growing away in my pond very happily producing as much as 6 - 7 blooms at a time. This is the only tropical water lily I grow and is definetely the star of my pond.

Waiting to see if it will survive the winter though.

Very large Wisteria-blue flower with dark purple stamens. It remains open until late afternoon & will continue blooming through early frost.Thick, dark green leaves with very serrated edges. Produces fertile seeds. Fantastic for the beginner. It has a medium to large spread & requires full sun.
