Sunfire Hardy Waterlily, a new, peach waterlily from hybridizer, Mike Giles. This specimen does best in an earth bottom pond as it was developed on a mountain in West Virginia. It still does well in a container, though in a container, the colors seem more muted. In an earth bottom pond where the rhizomes can stretch and grow to full potential, the coloration will change a little better than some other peaches through the year and express the greatest spectrum with cool mornings in late spring and early fall. Leaves are slightly flecked or mottled.
If planting in a container be sure to plant in something no less than 16 inches across so that you do not need to worry about re-potting continuously. Use loam soil and be sure to fertilize so that the blooms continue every day all summer. It should do fine with as little as 4 or 5 hours direct sunlight.
