Nyphaea 'Partytime' - Blooming Now at Green Wellies

This is the reason I love Water Gardens.
Water Lilies are at the showiest in the month of July, they love the hot, sultry days we have recently had.

I always prompt gardeners to add at least 1 Tropical Water Lily to their Water Features.
Tropicals bloom off the surface of the water, their blooms are usually larger and the have a longer bloom period.
If blue/purple tones are your preferred colours Tropical Water Lilies are your only choice.

Tropical Water Lilies can be overwintered in our zone 5, but think of them as another annual, providing you with colour all season long.
