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.
