Pre-Potted Red Waterlily
Froebelli is the current waterlily being sold as the potted red waterlily at the moment. Perry's Baby Red is likely to also be offered Pre-Potted as a red in the future.
Pre-Potted Red, Hardy Waterlily is ready to grow and bloom with stunning, star shaped red blooms! The green pads are a nice complement to this splendid waterlily specimen! This small waterlily adds vibrant color to your water garden feature. This is a small waterlily variety and looks great in small ponds or tub and container gardens. The spread on this heavy bloomer is 16 - 24 inches. (Pre-Potted varieties begin blooming quickly, whereas it takes bare root waterlilies 6 weeks to begin to bloom.)
If you choose to keep your pre-potted waterlily in its 3 inch container, simply place your pre-potted waterlily 4 - 10 inches beneath the surface of the water, in full sun. After 60 days, you must re-plant your hardy waterlily in a larger container (8 - 14 inches wide) using loam soil. Place the newly repotted waterlily 4 - 10 inches beneath the surface of the water, in full sun.
If using the 3 inch container for the first 60 days, add three fertilizer tabs once each month throughout the growing and blooming season. If you are using a larger container, use 4 - 5 fertilizer tabs each month throughout the growing and blooming season.
*We use, recommend and sell 'Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs' for best bloom, optimum growth and ease of use. Simply press the tabs into the soil of your waterlily container.
