‘Colorado’ Hardy Water Lily

A stunning peach waterlily that is a favorite.  It changes during the blooming season, first opening in the spring a yellow with pink and then changing to a smoked salmon color in the summer.  It has cactus-shaped blooms that will get 4-6 inches.  The new leaves on this lily open mottled with burgundy, and then maturing to a green color.  It will grow in full sun to part shade in 6-36 inches of water.  Tuberosa type rhizome.  Strawn, 1994.

A good choice for medium size ponds.
