Awesome Hardy Waterlily is from our Waterlily Pom Pom Series, Awesome Hardy Waterlily one of the loveliest waterlilies we sell! The blooms on the 'Awesome' Hardy Waterlily are quite large and have crinkly, peach petals with yellow, sun-kissed centers on this spectacular hybrid! Beautiful, full, lush, cup-shaped blooms that are perfectly shaped and multi-petaled! Once you see them, you'll say, "They're AWESOME!" This Award Winning waterlily is from award winning hybridizer, Tony Moore. Ever so lightly mottled pads are the perfect complement for this 'peach' of a waterlily.
Deep South Customers, please note, during the summer months in the deep south, water temperatures at the bottom of the pond can reach 75 degrees fahrenheit. When this happens, waterlilies in the Pom Pom Series go into summer dormancy and stop blooming.
Plant 1 - 3 feet beneath the surface of the water, in full sun.
Make sure you plant your waterlily in heavy loam soil and fertilize once a month with Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs + Humates OR get 80 - 90 days of optimum growth and best bloom with Landon Granular Fertilizer.
We suggest planting hardy waterlilies once the water is 62 - 65 degrees or better in spring. Plant no later in the year than 4 - 5 weeks before the first frost.
*We recommend and sell Landon Granular Fertilizer and Waterlily World Pond Tabs.
