Albert Greenberg is the Best of the Best

September 1, 2009 by Rick

 Albert Greenberg ColorSplashed

 

The most popular tropical water lily of all is Albert Greenberg named after the father of modern aquiculture. It stays open all day and blooms prolifically with orange-pink and pale yellow blooms above large variegated pads.

The Iphone has an APP called Color Splash that transforms pictures by converting them to grayscale then coloring in areas you touch with your finger. This is easy and helps accentuate the stories told with images and it is fun too.

They multiply quickly and bloom best if you divide them down to a single crown per container at least every other year. You will have plenty of bulbs to share after one year. In years with warm winters I have had them bloom every day of the year. They need 4 hours of direct sun and a pond or space in a pond 4 feet in diameter and 18 inches deep.

Tropical Water Lilies with Flare

August 29, 2009 by Rick

In Florida we are so fortunate to be able to grow Tropical Water Lilies. Hardy Water Lilies are the most common types sold throughout the U.S. but they do not perform as well in Florida as the tropical types. Some tropical water lilies like this all time favorite 'Red Flare' are night bloomers which means they open in the twilight hours for your evening garden stroll and then close by 11 AM unless it is cloudy. Then they stay open all day. The foliage is dark burgundy. 

The Iphone has an APP called Color Splash that transforms pictures by converting them to grayscale then coloring in areas you touch with your finger. This is easy and helps accentuate the stories told with images and it is fun too. Ponds add interest and sound from fountains. You can add destinations and focal points in any garden with a simple water feature.
