Quick Overview:

This beautiful purple waterlily was hybridized by Pairat Songpanich of Thailand and was one of the first purple hardy waterlilies created.  A cross between a tropical and a hardy waterlily ‘Siam Purple’ is winter hardy and good grower and flowerer.  The color is a very light purple with a nice cup shape.

Description

Easily grown in wet soil in still water in full sun to part shade. Full sun may be best, but plants will usually flower with as little as three hours of sun per day. Plant rhizomes horizontally in spring with bud end up in containers submerged in ponds or water gardens where the water is 12-48″ deep. When planted in containers, plants can be more easily moved later on if desired. Rhizomes may be planted directly in the muddy bottom of a pond.
