Lucida Hardy Waterlily
Lucida Hardy Waterlily is a splendid waterlily hybrid with 5 - 6 inch, star-shaped, rosy-red blooms. The inner petals are rosy-red while the outer petals have a silvery finish--giving this delightful waterlily a unique and unusual appearance. Lily pads are marked with dark splotches which add to the beauty and interest of this free-flowering, hardy waterlily. This vintage specimen has a 4 - 5 foot spread upon maturity.
Plant your Lucida Hardy Waterlily in a wide, shallow container using loam soil and place 6 - 12 inches beneath the surface of the water, in full sun. Once established, you may place this waterlily to a depth of 24 inches beneath the surface of the water. (Deeper depths are for mature plants.)
Fertilize your waterlilies throughout the growing / blooming season with a slow release fertilizer like 'Waterlily World Fertilizer Tabs' for optimum growth, best bloom and ease of use. Simply press the tabs into the soil of your waterlily container.
