Waterliles are the color palette of the pond. There are two main classifications of waterlilies; Hardy and Tropical.
Hardy Waterliles are day blooming. The leaves of a Hardy Waterlily are roundish and smooth-edged and reach from 1-12" wide. They are mostly a solid hue although a few are green with brown or dark purple markings. The leaves have a single split (sinus) from the outer edge to the middle of the leaf. The blooms of the Hardy Lily range from 4"-8" and colors vary from very dark garnet to clear pristine white. Hardy Lilies prefer to be in water depth of 18"-30", and require at least six hours of full sun a day. Although Hardy Lilies can tolerate slight motion of the water they prefer calm and still.
Tropical Waterliles come in either day blooming or night blooming. The leaves of the Tropical Lily are rough-edged and much larger than those of the Hardy. Leaves of the Tropical Lily tend to speckled or streaked in brown, maroon , or purple. They have a single split (sinus) from the outer edge to the middle of the leaf as well. The blooms of the Tropical Lily range from about 4"-10" depending on the variety. Tropical Lilies come in colors from white, yellow, pink, and purple to deep blues and reds. They prefer to be water depth of 12"-24" and require at least eight hours of full sun a day. Like the Hardy Lilies they do best in still, calm water with little to no motion.
