Lemon Meringue Waterlily
Lemon Meringue Hardy Waterlily is an Award Winning waterlily by award winning hybridizer, Tony Moore, and one of the waterlilies in our Pom Pom Series.. The scrumptious, cup shaped, flowers are in shades of lemon chiffon and glide upon the surface of the water. The blooms on Lemon Meringue Waterlily are lush and full with a high petal count.
Lightly flecked green pads look stunning on the Lemon Meringue Hardy Waterlily! This waterlily does extremely well when grown directly into the soil of natural bottom ponds or in large pots with loam soil.
Deep South Customers, please note, during the summer months, water temperatures can reach 75 degrees Fahrenheit at the bottom of the pond. When this happens, waterlilies like Lemon Meringue, in the Pom Pom Series may go into a summer dormancy and stop blooming.
Always plant your waterlilies in large, wide pots using heavy loam soil or aquatic planting medium. Once you have planted your waterlily in the container--place the container 1 - 2 feet beneath the surface of the water. Waterlilies are very heavy feeders! For strong plants and optimum bloom, you must fertilize your waterlilies.
Fertilize throughout the summer months during the growing/blooming season. We recommend and sell Landon Granular Fertilizer. Landon Granular Fertilizer is one of the very best fertilizers on the market. You can fertilize your waterlilies for 80 - 90 days with Landon Granular Fertilizer. Use 1/4 cup of Landon Fertilizer for each gallon of soil. Be very careful not to allow the Landon Fertilizer to touch the roots of new plants as they may 'burn'. A good rule of thumb is to mix the Landon Fertilizer in the bottom 2/3 of the container and leave the top 1/3 of the soil with no fertilizer. As the roots grow--the plants will have access to the fertilizer.
