Pink Hardy Water Lily – Mayla


Pink Hardy Water Lily

Mayla is one of the most striking hardy water lily available. The color of this hardy water lily flower sets it apart from almost any other hardy lily. Fully mature specimens have bright fuchsia-pink blooms and are set off by a mass of very long, bright-orange stamens.
This water lily will do best if planted in a large container.  The blooms increase in size throughout the summer.  Most hardy waterlilies need at least six hours of direct sunlight in order to grow and bloom  to it’s potential.  However, there are some varieties that do well in part shade. Many of the yellows, peach/orange , and some whites will perform with less sun. Mayla has a odorata running  rootstock  and for this reason requires a very large container to do it justice.  When established, the leaves can be well in excess of 30cm (12″) in diameter, so definitely not one for the tub garden

Shocking, brilliant deep fushsia flowers about 6” across that stand slightly above the water.


Hybridized by Dr. Kirk Strawn in 1993.


Fuchsia pink throughout petals. Flower shape Stellate, then wide open. Flower size 5-6 in. Strong fragrance.


Top medium green, some leaves are plum colored, newer leaves deep plum, underside, reddish purple.


Large spread.


5-6 hours full sun.


odorata rhizome, very free flowering.

One of Kirk Strawn’s favorite (and finest) hybrids, the vivid fuchsia flowers of this lily are large and open wide to “show off” long, orange stamens and rest gracefully on the water’s surface. The flowers are exceptionally fragrant as well. This one is a showpiece for any size pond.

Medium to large waterlilies can be placed in the pond at approximately 18-30 inches deep. The smaller varieties can be 8-12 inches deep and dwarf waterlilies at about 6 inches deep.  The larger waterlilies will grow in shallow water, although they may not flower as much as if they were in deeper water.
