Gardeners' Notes:

Positive NestEggFarms On Jul 28, 2003, NestEggFarms from Alachua, FL (Zone 9a) wrote:

This tropical waterlily is an excellent bloomer & fragrant to boot. Flowers are a rich sky blue with yellow centers and have 21-27 petals per bloom. New leaves are blotched purple but leaves mature to green. Fertilize often to maintain blooms. Medium to large spread.
