This prolific bloomer greets the day with its early morning blossoms, being one of the first to bloom in the year and the last to produce blooms in the fall. Like tropical water lilies, this flower gracefully emerges 4-5 inches above the water’s surface, while its sepals bend over, creating an enchanting spectacle.

The sepals will bend over similar to other tropical water lilies making an attractive sight.

The hardy ‘Fire Opal’ can withstand higher temperatures than other water lilies.

It is a profuse bloomer that opens early in the morning. it’s one of the first to bloom in the year and the last to produce blooms in the fall.

This ‘Fire Opal’ water lily resembles M. Marliac’s 1908 Odalisque also known as ‘Opalisque’ that was hybridized by Charles Masters during his work with Tricker’s in the 1930s. The staff referred to it as Fire Opal because of the wonderful flower description of pinks and orange and relative identification with ‘Opalisque’, and thus its descriptive name.

For example, a wet spring will have many clouds leading to less sunshine. Thus, the plants may need a bit longer to grow strong enough for transplanting and transit. With the planet heating up, a warm spring may help the plants grow strong enough to ship before the dates in this table. This applies to pick-ups a well as shipping.
