Tropical water lilies are referred to as “tropicals” because of their dislike for cold weather. Tropical water lily colours are typically blue, pink, purple, red, yellow and white. They are are available in both day and night blooming varieties. Tropical water lilies bloom much more profusely than hardies with three to five blooms open on most days during warm weather. They are intensely fragrant with a pleasing and pervasive aroma.
Nowadays there are 35 varieties of tropical water lilies in my garden for choosing.
