Almost Black Water Lily

2

The center of this water lily does look “almost black”. Depending on the light, at any given time it has shades of raspberry, pink, fuchsia and cranberry. I think this variety stays open longer than most water lilies —-3-4 days. As the flower fades it gets darker. This water lily is in the smallest of the three ponds. It’s keeping company with two white water lilies, one burgundy and a lotus. Haven’t had the burgundy, lotus or one white water lily bloom yet. I’m still getting used to the Arizona weather and growing patterns.
