TROPICAL WATERLILIES

FREE SHIPPING on Aquatic Plant Orders $50.00 or more! (limited time only)

Tropical Waterlilies are exceptionally vigorous plants and are quite easy to grow. Tropical waterlilies come in almost every color of flower imaginable and many will grow much larger in both flower and leaf than their hardy counterparts. Additionally all tropical waterlilies are heavily fragrant and with a few exceptions they outbloom the hardy varieties.

Tropical waterlilies also offer night-blooming flowers so you can enjoy blooms in your pond at any time of day or night!

As a general rule, tropical waterlilies prefer 8-18 inches of water above their roots (unless otherwise noted) and many of them may be planted as deep as 18-24 inches of water above the roots. Tropical waterlilies require warm water (70 In order for all waterlilies to bloom to their capacity, they must be placed in an area that receives full sunlight (at least 6 hours per  day) throughout the growing season unless otherwise noted. Available in white, yellow, pink, magenta/red, blue, purple, apricot and even green!

Sonoran Water Gardens 2016 Exclusive Introduction

The incredible colors and patterns of the leaves of ‘Arc-En-Ciel’ set it apart from all others. Each emerging leaf is like a new artist’s canvas - no two leaves are ever alike. Although it is too large for the average tub garden, ‘Arc-En-Ciel’ is content with a 2.5 gallon soil container, which will keep it fairly compact and perfectly adaptable to small and medium size ponds. A simply-must-have variety for the serious waterlily enthusiast, and all of us who love patterned foliage!
