Blue-green foliage with delicate-looking flowers that open in morning and close by afternoon. Blossoms come in white, pink, red, yellow or blends; they last for about 3 days before petals fall off to reveal an ornamental seed pod. Classic look for larger ponds or water gardens.
Care: full sun & warm air/water temperature (at least 70 degrees in the water), keep 2-3” of water in pot at all times. Great in ponds or aquatic container gardens – Heavy feeders: fertilize in spring after new growth begins, continue feeding monthly through June-July. Do not allow tuber to freeze.Care
