Barbara Dobbins Hardy Waterlily is a medium to large sized waterlily with lovely 4 - 6 inch, peachy-pink blooms and attractive, slightly mottled pads that mature to solid green. Mature plants can have a 6 foot spread or larger and this plant looks good in medium to large ponds or lakes. Hybridized by Kirk Strawn in 1996, Barbara Dobbins Waterlily has blooms that stand 4 - 6 inches above the surface of the water and the handsome green pads.
Plant your waterlily in a wide, shallow container using loam soil. Place your newly planted waterlily in shallow water (6 - 10 inches beneath the surface of the water) until your waterlily is established. Once established, the waterlily may be place 12 - 24 inches deep, in full sun.
Fertilize your waterlily each month with aquatic fertilizer tabs for best bloom and optimum growth.
