Hardy Water Lily

Perry’s Rich Rose

Perry’s Rich Rose is a Hardy Water lily that is a good lily for any size pond. The leaves and flowers of this variety are often the same size. Plant height varies with depth of pool. Commonly referred to as “Water Lilies” these plants have adapted to living in a total water environment This variety has rose flowers with red sepals. It has 9 inch green leaves with red undersides.

The leaves of these plants are individually supported on leaf stalks called petioles.

Water Lily blossoms vary greatly in color and size. They enjoy neutral to alkaline water and grow best in full sun. Planting  should be done in water no cooler than 75 degrees F. If the water is too cool the plant will enter a dormant state.

Hardy Water lilies are a good choice for Koi ponds if the fish tend to nibble on pond plants. The leaves are very thick and sturdy and can  handle if the Koi or other pond fish are hard  on them.
