Hardy Water Lilies

Hardies do better in cooler climates than tropicals, and require less care. For those of you in the milder climes, we recommend a mixture of hardies and tropicals to extend the blooming season as long as possible.

As always, if you have any questions, or are looking for a specific variety that we don't have listed, please E-mail us and we will be happy to help you.
