Charlene Strawn is a hearty grower with flowers that truly shine. The flowers tend to sit above the water line from 1 to 6 inches tall. This yellow water lily blooms well and is a very good start for a new gardener. It can grow in full sun but can also tolerate heavy shade.
Huge, fragrant, sun colored blossoms with long, narrow curved petals rise slightly above equally large forest green leaves red flecked cocoa beneath to make Sunrise an outstanding addition to anyone’s waterscape. An excellent bloomer, Sunrise adjusts well to semi-shade.
|Uber Gold |
It’s adaptability to semi-shade areas and to container planting, in combination with its vivid beauty makes this hardy lily a universal favorite. Not only beautiful, but extremely hardy, the UberGold is known to weather bitterly cold winters and produce it’s canary blossoms as soon as spring arrives. Mustard stamen compliment this lily’s saffron petals and pink tinted sepals, which are set on a pale sulfur background. Bronze marked, olive leaves and a delicate scent complete the beauty of this hardy.
This plant is one of the old lilies developed by Adelaide Botanic Gardens in the early 1900s. It is very different than most yellows and of course very spectacular. A moderate bloomer that requires a lot of sun and flowers are 5 to 6 inches in diameter when planted in a large pot but is adaptable to small pots and ponds as well. The leaves are green with some faded purple specks and the underside is red with the purple specks. A truly different lily.
This is an old one folks. Name is derived from an Arabic word nailufar, meaning water lily. This is an original. Lots of green leaves, not many flowers but they are as you can see very different and very spectacular in a different way. Nuphar is for the water gardener that has everything and wants to show the basics. As you glance over the pond suddenly there is a question. What it that? Even to the most seasoned water gardener.
