Colorado Water Lily
This prolific, award-winning water lily is a customer favorite because of its very long blooming season.
The unique salmon-colored flowers stand 3 inches to 4 inches above the water’s surface and bloom late into the season with a pleasant fragrance. The flowers rise high above the dark green foliage, which makes them particularly striking from a distance!
A truly astonishing water lily, “Colorado’ was hybridized by Dr. Kirk Strawn in 1994, and it is very free flowering. The flowers are 5-6 inches wide, the leaves are 5-7 inches wide, and the overall plant spread is 3-5 feet wide.
This water lily grows best in full to partial sun. We recommend growing ‘Colorado’ in a 7.5 quart or larger container (available from naturehills.com). Also available from naturehills.com is Aquatic Planting Media and Lilytabs Water Lily Fertilizer.
This may be the hardiest water lily you will ever grow! With 5 hours of direct sun, it will consistently out-perform other hardy lilies. The flowers are magnificent, large, and relatively long-lasting.
