Nymphaea 'Escarboucle'
Waterlilies 'Escarboucle'
Waterlilies 'Escarboucle' is an award-winning variety that produces an abundance of large, fragrant, star-shaped blooms over a long blooming season. A hybrid of other water lily variants, this cultivar was named for the French word meaning "ruby" or "garnet' for its deep-red coloration. Waterlilies 'Escarboucle' is consistently considered one of the best red water lily varieties for its free-flowering habit, bright and long-living blooms, and attractive foliage.
Nymphaea 'Almost Black'
Waterlilies 'Almost Black'
Considered the second-darkest lily after the "Black Princess" variety, waterlilies 'Almost Black' displays a near-black base with a gradient of maroon-to-white petals. Cultivated as a hybrid of other water lilies, this variety was easily named after its "almost black" coloration. Waterlilies 'Almost Black' is very popular for its vigorous growth and flowering, unique colors, and long blooming season.
Nymphaea 'Aurora'
Waterlilies 'Aurora'
Waterlilies 'Aurora' is a hardy aquatic perennial that blooms during the day. This nymphaea must be carefully planted in a loamy soil, which is then flooded. It prefers full sun, in which it will happily bloom for days in early summer and early fall. Gardeners should keep a close eye out for pests that will eat it.
Nymphaea tetragona
Pygmy water lily
Pygmy water lily is a hardy aquatic perennial that thrives in areas with ample sun but with cooler temperatures. This small, plant is typically used for still-water garden ponds and water features, providing a wonderful aesthetic while also offering shelter for aquatic creatures and controlling algae spread.
Nymphaea ampla
White lotus
The white lotus (Nymphaea ampla) is sometimes tinted with pink. It is native to southern Mexico and survives in ponds with still or slow-moving water. The plant was traditionally used in Mesoamerican and Mayan art.
Nymphaea nouchali var. caerulea
Egyptian lotus
The egyptian lotus (Nymphaea nouchali var. caerulea) is an aquatic plant native to Africa. Showy blue flowers bloom in summer amid wide, floating leaves. The roots anchor into the mud of the pond floor below. They can also be planted in backyard ponds or wide pots. Many species of fish appreciate the shade these floating plants provide.
Nymphaea 'Pygmaea Helvola'
Waterlilies 'Pygmaea Helvola'
A miniature hardy yellow water lily, the waterlilies 'Pygmaea Helvola' flowers throughout its blooming season. It is the child cultivar of the Nymphaea mexicana Zucc and Nymphaea tetragona Georgi. Due to its small size, the waterlilies 'Pygmaea Helvola' can be utilized in small backyard water gardens and will provide many showy blooms that will last multiple days.
Nymphaea 'Wanvisa'
Waterlilies 'Wanvisa'
Considered unique for its half-red and half-green lily pads and peachy-pink flowers, the waterlilies 'Wanvisa' derives from an N. Joey Tomocik pond in Thailand. Gardeners may consider the waterlilies 'Wanvisa' useful in water gardens as it is easy to care for and offers ornamental interest. The word Wanvisa signifies a day of celebration for Buddha, and it was the day of the new plant's first bloom.
