Nymphaea 'Blue Beauty'
|These aquatic plants are prized for their star-shaped, semi-double flowers which bloom in many colors. Flowers and large leaves float on or rise just above the surface of water. Need full sun to bring out their gorgeous blooms. Plant easy-to-grow, hardy varieties where freezing winters kill the tender tropical varieties. Plant rhizomes on the surface of soil, 8 to 12 inches below the waterline, in a pond or container.
The large, dramatic leaves of this tropical day-blooming lily grow up to 2 feet across and are flecked with brown and purplish in undersides with undulating margins. Fragrant, rounded semi-double, deep blue flowers to 12 inches across. Plant 1½ to 3 feet deep.
