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!
