Product Description

Bouquet Just Released!

Originally sold as the hot pink star of our 2015 Collector’s HXT™ Trio, ‘Turtle Island Tropic Star’® is now available for individual sale!

‘Turtle Island Tropic Star’® HXT™ is a newly registered Intersubgeneric nymphaea. The result of hybridization between tropical and hardy nymphaeas highlighting a compact Marliac-Odorata root type.  ‘Turtle Island Tropic Star’® HXT™ grows like a hardy waterlily and is quite the prolific bloomer. Akin to a watercolor painting, the delicate flowers display a fuchsia, pink and red palette with lighter petal bases. This exotic plant has medium flowers between 5″ to 8″ with pineapple center and tangerine stamens that mimic tropical stamens in form. The tips of the stamens are the color of the petals. The fragrance is of a light tropical note with some hardy sweetness. The flowers are held high above the water on good stems and should make great cut flowers. The plant size is medium in footprint with dark forest to green leaves that start out mahogany. ‘Turtle Island Tropic Star’® HXT™, tested hardy through multiple winters in our ponds under 12 inches of ice and -20° F. Blooming will be continuous from Spring till Fall and may well extend through Winter further South with fertilizer. ‘Turtle Island Tropic Star’® HXT™ has an unknown shade tolerance. A beautiful, vigorous and trouble free hot pink HXT™ nymphaea addition for the Connoisseur.
