Not all of the waterlilies I have are listed here, because I couldn't find pictures of all of them, or they are in my
stock tanks and need to be separated and repotted, or I don't remember all the varieties that I have out there.
The ones that are listed here are potted in clay soil and ready to go into your pond. I know I have a couple of
reds, so I'll be adding those soon.
