"Fragrance And Fortune" is a brand new, Small-Medium, winter hardy waterlily.
The fragrance is more pronounced compared to other hardy lilies-- especially on the first day flowers.
The shade of yellow on Fragrance And Fortune is an incredibly unique, bright-yellow with no peach shades in it whatsoever. Much, much brighter than Joey Tomocik, the former most yellow hardy water lily.
In ponds with a pond liner, grow in a 10 to 17 inch wide pot using loam sifted topsoil. Do not use soil from a bag, which has compost which will rot and float.
The rhizome loves fertilizer tablets from spring until fall and must be divided once in spring and once in midsummer for maximum flowering.
Measure depth from the mud at the top of the pot, to the water's surface. Best 5 to 10 inches beneath the surface of the water-- but can "tolerate" water to 26 inches above the soil it is planted in. Plant in full sun for flowering.
Fertilize with 3 to 4 Waterlily World tablets on the 1st and 15th of each month for almost daily blooms into late September or October.
For in-ground ponds with no liner, these again, prefer full sun. Best anchored into the embankment soil just 6 to 10 inches below the waterline when planted. Consider temporary fencing for 6 to 10 weeks when establishing in existing ponds with wildlife so that plants can get ahead of any plant predators like raccoons, turtles, etc.
