This water lily, Nymphaea “Albert Greenberg” is not in an ideal place. It is out on the driveway in full sun in large ceramic bowl. It really needs to be in a pond to thrive with cooler temperatures than Houston offers. The flower petals tend to wilt easily under the hot Texas sun. Why do I have it? It is just so pretty, that I am willing to wait for the right bloom. The color of the flower is so complex. It is a perfect balance of apricot and yellow, and pinks.
