Gardeners' Notes:

Positive visualgardener On Sep 22, 2010, visualgardener from Frederick, MD (Zone 6b) wrote:

Simply exquisite plant. One of the slim few hardy plants to retain mottling on the foliage as the leaf ages, which is a highlight of tropicals. The bloom is virtually identical to 'Colorado', so not as unique, but is still a show-stopper. It definately needs full sun (I tried this in the bright spot in my pond one year, and it performed okay at 6 hours of direct light) and benefitted from some over-fertilization on my part. A nice one to add to the collection or use as a focal of a small pond, as it's not huge, about 2' to 3' around at most.

This lovely lily is undemanding and flowers regularly. It seems to prefer cooler temperatures and in mid-summer the flowers have very little pink in them. During cooler weather, the pink is much more intense. The flowers are usually raised just above the surface of the pond. This lily tolerates a fair amount of water disturbance. Ours is just three feet from the base of our waterfall. The mottled leaves are a definite plus.

This hardy is like a miniature Colorado and is perfectly suited to small ponds or tub gardens. Small salmon colored petals with new leaves a mottled color that turns green with maturity.
