New Water Garden Plants 2010
Each year Florida Aquatic Nurseries strives to bring new and exciting water garden plants to the market. This year we are especially excited to add two of our own waterlily hybrids and one of our own marginal plant creations that will be sold exclusively through FAN.  Two of the water lilies we are adding are winners from the International Waterlily and Water Garden Society's contest. Both of these lilies Nymphaea 'Blue Aster' 2005 and Nymphaea 'Ultra Violet' 2008 were the Best New Waterlilies overall for each year. Also, we are introducing a new marginal plant to the trade, Hibiscus 'Sunrise'. This is a water Hibiscus with reddish leaves and bright yellow flowers. It is possible that a few more plants will be added at a later date so please check back frequently.
