Available for purchase is a beautiful Hardy WATER LILY Nymphaea, Colorado.
Enjoy decorative mottled lilypads and unique-colored, cactus shaped blooms while naturally filtering pond water. The flowers rise high out of the water like a tropical! This is one of my very favorites. Just one water lily filled half of my medium pond the first year! Once established, they can be planted directly on the pond bottom or in a submersible pot, and survive the winter without being pulled out. Full sun is desired, but they will tolerate some shade. They even stay evergreen in mild climates. They are reliable bloomers and reproduce very well, giving you years of enjoyment. They are very hardy and very little care is needed. I believe the "strong shall survive" in my garden. You will appreciate my motto!
