Patio Joe Hardy Waterlily is very similar to the Colorado Waterlily in color, the peachy-pink blooms are held above the surface of the water and the pads are beautifully mottled. The mottled pads are what set 'Patio Joe' apart from the Colorado Waterlily. Hybridized by Kirk Strawn, Patio Joe Waterlily is a medium sized waterlily that looks great in any pond!
Plant your Patio Joe Waterlily in a wide, shallow container using loam soil. Place the non growing end of the waterlily next to the side of the container. Cover the roots with soil but leave the crown of the plant exposed to the sunlight. Place your container in 12 - 18 inches of water, in full sun, until the plant is established. Once your waterlily is established, you may move it to a deeper part of the pond, in up to 24 inches of water. Please note, rocks or stones should never be placed on the top of the soil as this will impede growth. (See our Home Page for instructions on how to prepare 'loam soil'.
Fertilize your waterlilies once a month with fertilizer tabs for best bloom and optimum growth!
