Water Hawthorne grows and blooms in
cool/cold water of late fall until the warm water
of early summer when it then goes dormant. In
early fall when the water is cooler again, it starts the
cycle again and begins to grow and bloom.
The white fragrant flowers are
present from September until April. The flowers are held
slightly above the mottled foliage that is oblong green.
The undersides of the leaves are red in color.
Flowers have a slight vanilla fragrance.
NOTE: During the warm summer months and early fall
months the bulb you receive will be dormant. The dormant
bulbs can not be added to a cold pond, one below 55
degrees. In colder climates, purchase the dormant bulb
and let them root as the water cools down. Then they
will start to bloom in the fall.
GROWING TIP: can be planted in the same pot with
a water lily. The Water Hawthorne will be dormant
when the lily is blooming and when the Water Hawthorne
is active, growing and blooming, the water lily will be
Truly unique one of a kind plant!
