This is one of our favorites! The 'Green Smoke' tropical water lily is an outstanding color of chartreuse with smoky blue tips. Its leaves are lightly speckled, bronze-green and the blooms of the 'Green Smoke' are 6-8 inches held high above the water that are platter shaped.It will spread 5-6 feet on the water surface. This is a good choice for small to medium size ponds.
You can safely place a tropical waterlily in your outdoor pond when the water reaches a consistent temperature of about 70 degrees. You can stunt the growth or even kill a tropical lily if placed into a cold pond. It sends the lily into shock, returning them to dormancy. You should fertilize the lily every two or three weeks to keep it blooming throughout the warm season.
