Lily Pons Hardy Waterlily
Lily Pons Hardy Waterlily is a large waterlily with a 4 - 5 foot spread. The green lily pads are 4 - 6 inches in diameter. Lily Pons Waterlily was named after the famous opera star, Miss Lilly Pons. This is a shy bloomer and does not produce many blooms, however, when this waterlily does bloom, the flowers are sensational with rich, pink color and a many petaled flower!
Plant your hardy waterlily in a wide, shallow container using loam soil. Place the waterlily container 1 - 2 feet beneath the surface of the water in full sun. Fertilize once each month throughout the growing / blooming season with a slow release fertilizer like 'Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs', for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press the tabs into the soil next to the roots of your waterlily plant.
