Orange Hardy Water Lilies


This hardy water lily was named Best New Waterlily for 2010, beating out 30 other entrants in the competition sponsored by the International Waterlily (IWGS) and Water Gardening Society (IWGS).

Nymphaea ‘Wanvisa’ is the first hardy variety to be named
‘Best in Pond’ since the competition began in 1997.

This water lily is a great addition to any pond. It is very hardy and able to bloom even in shadier conditions.  It does best in full sun.  Will winter over in any zone in the United States.

Dr. Nopchai Chansilpa of Thailand, a water lily hybridizer, introduced this waterlily to
aquatic plant enthusiasts at the 2010 IWGS Symposium held in San Angelo, Texas.

It has salmon-pink petals streaked with white/cream, variegation never before seen in a hardy waterlily. It is described as a good bloomer with pads heavily mottled with deep bronze and bright green. Its vigorous and compact growth habits make it a good choice for most water gardens.
Dr. Chansilpa did not create this waterlily. He rescued it from an unspoiled pond of
N. ‘Joey Tomocik’ in Thailand. He saw the potential of the vagrant and saved it from being discarded. For three years, he grew the plant to determine if the flower and pad variegations remained constant and if it could be propagated. Almost 500 plants later, the answer to both concerns was ‘Yes.’

The rescued waterlily first bloomed for its new owner on the day of Visakabucha, the most
important holy day in Buddhism. It commemorates the birth, enlightment and death of
Lord Buddha, (Wan= day and Visa=Visakabucha).
