     Background of ISG Hardy Water Lilies.  The world’s first ISG (intersubgenetic) Hardy Water Lily was created in Thailand by Pairat Songpanich. Crossing a hardy water lily with a tropical water lily has never been accomplished until Pirat Songpanich succeeded in 2007 and made the world’s first blue/purple hardy which he named Siam, after the former name of Thailand. Later, he introduced a ISG hardy purple hybrid and called it Siam Purple. The water lilies have a variety of characteristics of both tropical and hardy water lilies. Along with other various characteristics of hardy water lilies, these hybrids have rhizomes similar to hardy varieties. The water lilies blossoms are purple (similar to the purple loosestrife and becomes darker as the year progresses) and often shows streaks of blue in the petals.
