‘Blue Gigantea’ Tropical Water Lily

Item # 10-1006

$65.99

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 (May) and only will ship when planting conditions are optimum for your area. Once established in your water garden it will become characteristically spectacular.

Spring Shipping Schedule: Preorder Season Expected Ship Dates

This is the expected shipping weeks for preorder season that is about December through April. Plants cannot be shipped until they are strong enough for transit and the weather from Ohio to you is warm enough so that the lifeforms can survive overnight stops. If the spring weather is sunny and warm in northern Ohio, then some plants may ship earlier. If the spring weather has a lot of storms, cloudy weather and is cool, then some plants need a tad more time to get strong enough for transit.
