New Water Garden Plants 2011
Florida Aquatic Nurseries has many new water garden plants to add for the 2011 season.  We are especially happy to be offering three of our new waterlily hybrids for the first time this coming season, Nymphaea 'Hot Pink', Nymphaea 'Tropic Sunset', and the Best New Waterlily of 2009 Nymphaea 'Tanzanite'.  We expect the availability numbers to be very good on these new releases this year, but as always there is a chance that we will run out during the season.  On the marginal plant side the demand for cannas has increased and we have added two new varieties with striped leaves for this coming season, Pink Sunburst and Striped Beauty.  We hope these new plants will help all of our customers to stay on the forefront of the market and increase sales with great new water plants.

Tropical waterlily Nymphaea Alexis

Nymphaea 'Alexis'

This is an excellent tropical waterlily hybrid by Stuart Schuck of Maryland Aquatic Nurseries. Nymphaea 'Alexis' produces large deep blue flowers with petaloid stamens creating the unique anemone look to the flower.  The flowers are held high above olive green pads on a vigorous plant creating a great overall package.

Hot Pink Tropical Waterlily

Nymphaea 'Hot Pink'

Nymphaea 'Hot Pink' took the honors for Second Best Tropical waterlily in 2009 as awarded by the International Waterlily and Watergarden Society.  This exciting new waterlily from Florida Aquatic Nurseries lives up to its name with bright fluorescent pink colored flowers held high above strikingly mottled pads.  The flowers of this waterlily are quite large in size with up to 50 petals and remain open till later in the evening than most other tropicals.  This gives the working individual a chance to still see beautiful flowers when returning after a hard day of work.  Nymphaea 'Hot Pink' will catch your eye from quite a distance in any pond or water garden.

Foxfire Tropical Waterlily

Nymphaea 'Foxfire'

One of the most striking waterlilies on the market today Nymphaea 'Foxfire' is now available for the 2011 season. Winner of the Best Overall Waterlily in 2004 this unique waterlily has strikingly mottled pads with a large flower that has purple petals with a bright orange center.  Availability on this plant will be limited so order them early.

Rhapsody In White Tropical Waterlily

Nymphaea 'Rhapsody In White'

A new star waterlily hybrid from Ken Landon, Nymphaea 'Rhapsody In White' has large white flowers held high above chocolate colored pads.  The dark colored lily pads help to accentuate the white flowers.  Star waterlilies are know for having multiple flowers open on the same plant in the same day.

Tanzanite Tropical Waterlily

Nymphaea 'Tanzanite'

The Best New Waterlily in the world for 2009!  This is a stunning new addition to the line of waterlily hybrids created by Florida Aquatic Nurseries.  Deep purple flowers with over 50 petals are held above nicely mottled pads to create an overall appearance that led to this being voted the top new waterlily for 2009.  Nymphaea 'Tanzanite' has the deepest purple flowers on the market.  Availability is limited.

Tropic Sunset Tropical Waterlily

Nymphaea 'Tropic Sunset'

Nymphaea 'Tropic Sunset' is the culmination of a 10 year effort to create an autumn colored flower on a viviparous tropical waterlily.  There is no other plant on the market like it!  Beautiful autumn colored flowers sit above nicely mottled pads to create a stunning overall appearance.  This medium sized waterlily is a prolific bloomer and vigorous grower that will surely be around for years to come.

Bali Red Lotus

Lotus 'Bali Red'

This beautiful Lotus with dark red flowers was given to us by the Kampong in Miami.  This is a new addition to the commercial market that can't be found anywhere else.  This particular Lotus was collected in the Bali area and, unlike other Lotus varieties, has a propensity to flower in cooler weather.

Pink Sunburst Canna Lily

Canna 'Pink Sunburst'

Bright pink flowers sit atop maroon striped leaves to give the Canna a remarkably beautiful overall appearance.  Pink Sunburst is a smaller growing Canna variety thus giving it more versatility in the pond setting. 

Striped Beauty Canna Lily

Canna 'Striped Beauty'

This popular variety has green and white striped leaves with beautiful yellow flowers.  Canna 'Striped Beauty' will liven up any pond or water garden with its outstanding foliage and flower colors.
