Nymphaea 'Firecrest'

Waterlily

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.
Nymphaea, Waterlily
This hardy day-bloomer holds its star-shaped lavender pink flowers with red-tipped stamens above the water. Deep purple new leaves set off the blossoms. Plant in containers at least 2 feet across and 1 foot deep so that a colony of roots will form. Fine for medium or large pools.
