Nymphaea 'Judge Hitchcock'
|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.
An interesting, tropical, day blooming lily, its blooms take on a two-toned effect with intensely purplish flowers, golden stamens, and purple anthers. The small, dark green leaves are spotted with brown and purple underneath. Plant 1½ to 2½ feet deep.
