Description

With its celestial name, ‘Astraea’ evokes the mythology of its Greek namesake. This historic water lily cultivar from the nursery blends attractive shades of blue that fade to white at the base. Golden stamens dot the center, like stars in the night sky, surrounded by star-shaped petals. During the growing season, ‘Astraea’ blooms abundantly with purple-tinged blossoms held aloft on deep green pads. Your friends will be amazed by these beautiful blooms reaching high above the water

The name ‘Astraea’ references the Greek goddess of justice, innocence and purity. Mythology tells that she was the last immortal to live among humans before fleeing from wickedness to the heavens. She became the constellation Virgo, while her scales of justice became the constellation Libra

With parents like Nymphea gracilis and Nymphea zanzibariensis, two preferred water lily hybrids, it’s no wonder ‘Astraea’ became a horticultural treasure. This celestial water lily lives up to its starry name.
