Astraea Tropical Water Lily

Astraea Tropical Water Lily

Astraea is an old time favorite water lily here at Trickerís nursery! The name Astraea is found in Greek mythology and translated as ďstar maidenĒ. Astraea and her mother were both personifications of justice and she was considered the last of the immortals to live with humans. She fled from wickedness of humanity and ascended to heaven and became the constellation Virgo and the scales of justice she carried became the nearby constellation Libra.

Astraea is a cross between two select water lily hybrids: N. gracilis and N. zanzibariensis hybrids. The pads are a deep green above and tinged purple beneath. The blossoms are a very attractive blue and are star shaped. The petals are blue shading to white at the base. Stamens are an attractive yellow against the blue petals. The blue flowers are held high above the water level and can be seen at a distant! We are sure you will be pleased with such a wonderful water lily!
