Waiting to see how it grows. Plant was pitiful looking, and not many roots
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.
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!
If you are looking for a prolific bloomer that fits nicely in a small pond or tub garden then this is the tropical lily for you.
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.
Excellent bloomer that doesn't require full sun and will tolerate growing in a confined space.
