2014 IWGS Best New Tropical Waterlily

Description:

Nymphaea ‘Foxfire’ is a truly a unique tropical waterlily. Its pink ring of narrow petals in the center with a medium blue backdrop of wider petals is such a beautiful contrast! Add the wonderful variegated leaves and you have a treasured gem. Presnell developed this fascinating flower in 2003, so its fairly new but quite popular. The long outer petals are medium blue and the short inner petals are a soft pink. The flower measures 8-9 inches and sits brilliantly among 19x17inch maroon with green mottled leaves. The plant spreads to a whopping 10 feet, which makes it perfect for any medium to large pond. This waterlily is one of the earliest to open.
