      This is one of the very best red hardy waterlilies and is recomended for medium to large watergardens. The blooms stay open later into the afternoon and last longer than most of the other red hardy waterlilies. Would be a good lily to have in a region where it gets dark earlier, and because it is a hardy, it would be able to handle the cold as well.
