Nymphea ‘Sunfire’, a Mike Giles original hybrid hardy waterlily, is a prolific bloomer that can vary from shocking deep red-pink with orange center petals to hot red-pink with yellow center petals—or even almost all yellow or almost white. Soil, fertilizer, sun exposure, local climate and water conditions all contribute to the variations in flower color. As a result, no two plants will look exactly alike.
Sunfire is an excellent bloomer that starts early and blooms non-stop until most other lilies have long ago given up for the year. This medium-sized lily does well in cramped, low fertility conditions, so both novice and experienced water gardeners will enjoy its colorful blooms. The flowers tend to open more fully toward the fall and the colors don’t fade, making Sunfire a great late-season plant.
