Tropical Waterlilies

I am posting these tropical waterlilies just to show you some pretty pictures.  These plants were grown here and photographed on site.

Photo below is Jack Wood     This is a tropical day bloomer and rather easy to grow.  Tends to be cold tolerant and sometimes survives outside in Piedmont North Carolina.

Notice the nectar in the center of the bloom.  This is Wood’s Blue Goddess.  It is one of my favorites and also is a day bloomer.   WBG was developed by Jack Wood in 1986.

Emily Grant Hutchings is tropical night bloomer.  It sets seeds readily.
