Water Hawthorne Aponogeton distachyus  lily-like-aquatic

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 dormant.

Truly unique one of a kind plant!
