Blue Gigantea. One of our favorite tropical water lilies that was introduced into the United States in the 1800s. The species is native to Australia. It is considered the "queen of the water lilies". It has one of the longest enduring blossoms, which is open on five to seven successive days from eight to nine a.m. until twilight. The blossoms, sky blue in color, sometimes have a diameter of 12 inches. The blossoms are held on strong stalks. Because the stalks are so large and have many air channels, they were once used by the aborigines when forced to take to the water to escape from enemies. The supply is limited so order early to reserve yours. The plant typically establishes in Tricker's nursery in the later Spring when planting conditions are optimum for your area. Once established in your water garden it will become characteristically spectacular.
