' Painted Lady' Waterlily, an extraordinary and unique plant!

Painted Lady is a medium-sized, hardy waterlily that is both unique and stunning! Petals on the flowers are often striped with pink and white color throughout the flower. Pads are often splashed with shades of pink, red, cream, and green. Plant 'Painted Lady' where you can enjoy the subtle variations of multi-petaled blooms and pads. Painted Lady Hardy waterlily does well in cooler climates and looks great in small, medium, and large ponds. Painted Lady was hybridized by Tony Moore in 2013 and is a perfect bloomer!

Planting Instructions

Plant your Painted Lady, a medium-sized, hardy waterlily, in a wide, shallow container using loam soil. (Read our instructions on loam soil on our home page.) Cover the roots in soil but leave the crown of the plant above the soil as the crown of the plant needs to receive sunlight to grow. Never add rocks or stones to the top of the container, as this may hinder the plant's growth. Place the container in full sun, 6-12 inches beneath the surface of the water. Once the plant is established, you can move it a little lower in the pond, up to 24 inches beneath the surface of the water. Fertilize your waterlily once a month with pond tabs for the best bloom and healthy growth. Once your waterlily is established, you should have blooms all summer long, often into fall. 

Fertilizing Instructions

Fertilize with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs + Humates, for optimum growth and best blooming every 2-3 weeks through spring and summer!

Use 3 to 4 tablets for water lilies every two weeks; we suggest the 1st and 15th of each month for optimal and continuous flowering until fall! Remember, lilies also like full, direct, unobstructed sunlight as much of the day as possible and regular dividing at the root as needed. Any cramped pots will lessen the blooming of waterlilies. A 15" fabric aquatic growpot with handles is suggested for any medium or large waterlily. The 7.5-inch pots are okay for up to 8 months of growth for smaller waterlilies. 

PondGro Aquatic Soil is perfect for those who do not have access to plain good topsoil for their waterlilies. We never suggest aquatic planting media, pea gravel, or other stones for pond plants. You will end up with lots of mortality and plants that never perform. Only plain sifted Topsoil should ever be used for waterlilies; it can have a heavy sand base or clay base but should not include organic compost, so never buy anything bagged as that always has compost added, which floats and rots. 

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.
