Fire Opal. (syn Opalisque) After years of blooming and growing at Tricker's nursery, we are introducing a most spectacular water lily that will be great for any water garden pool. It closely resembles and has many characteristics of M. Marliac's 1908 Odalisque or also known as Opalisque by Charles Masters during his association with Tricker's in the 1930s. Our staff referred to it as Fire Opal because of the wonderful flower description of pinks and orange and relative identification with Opalisque and thus introduced it under that descriptive name. It has a wonderful glow of yellow to orange-pink color in the many stallate petals which can be described of as a peach color. The flower typically rises upwards to 4-5 inches above the water level, similar to the tropical water lilies and as commonly seen in many of Marliac hybrids and specifically noteworthy of Opalisque. This allows the sepals to bend downward similiar to the tropical water lilies making an attractive sight. It can also withstand higher temperatures than other water lilies and is winter hardy. It is a profuse bloomer and opens early in the morning. One of the first to bloom in the year and the last to produce blooms in the fall. A most spectacular water lily!
