    Waiting to see how it grows. Plant was pitiful looking, and not many roots

    Beautiful healthy Dauben with a great root system. I planted the lily Tuesday afternoon and it had its first bloom on Friday. Lots of buds are coming up along with new little lily pads. Your instructions to plant the tropical water lily on a mound

    I have been planting water lilies for many years . Lately I buy just one tropical, usually a Dauben for a small water garden on our deck. I am quite pleased with the plant that you sent me.

    Amazing Bloomer!

    Posted by Dolores Chupela on Jun 24th 2021

    I planted Dauben on the day it arrived and it bloomed the next day! It continues to bloom and looks simply stunning in my water lily tub! The plants arrived fresh and huge! My first attempt to order this season was met with sadness because everything was out of stock. I ordered from another company and they are horrible! Checked back with Lilyblooms in June and found Dauben back in stock! I ordered and am absolutely thrilled!

    Well established tropical lily

    Posted by John D on Jun 6th 2017

    While this small tropical lily was shipped bare root it was a well established plant with multiple buds and several blossoms. In addition the color of this tropical can very from powder blue to almost white, this was a really a wonderful power blue. The shipment was quick and the plant was in good shape on arrival.

    Wonderful Dwarf Tropical Lilly

    Excellent bloomer that doesn't require full sun and will tolerate growing in a confined space.
