Quick Overview:

‘Waterlily’ has slightly larger flowers that have more numerous tepals (sometimes to 36) and are less floppy, resulting in a waterlily-like appearance (hence the cultivar name). Dark green leaves (2-4” long) are attractive throughout the growing season. Fall color ranges from respectable gold to mediocre brownish-yellow. Red seeds form in greenish pods that split open in fall.

Description

Best grown in moist, organically rich, well-drained loams in full sun to part shade. Best flowering in full sun. Appreciates consistent and even moisture in summer. Generally intolerant of soil extremes (dry or wet). Intolerant of most urban pollutants. Best sited in locations protected from high winds, but generally avoid southern exposures where the buds may be induced to open too early in late winter. Mulch (compost or bark) helps retain soil moisture. Prune only if needed immediately after flowering.

‘Waterlily’ blooms about 2 weeks later than the species, and accordingly is less susceptible to flower loss from spring frosts.
