Water Lilies for Ponds

Tropical Waterlily Coral Sky
Coral Sky – N. ‘Coral Sky’ is unique because of its unique flower color. At first glance it looks pink but on closer inspection the color is more autumn than pink. The large flower stands tall and is very full with 40 plus petals. The plant is vigorous and compact and has lively mottled leaves.

N. Bagdad flower 2nd day
Bagdad – Light blue blooms.  Flower shape is full star.  Green leaves, heavy mottling.  Sweet fragrance.  Viviparous.

Nymphaea Hot Pink
Hot Pink – Nymphaea ‘Hot Pink’ was the Second Best Tropical Waterlily of 2009 as awarded by the International Waterlily and Water Garden Association in their annual new waterlily competition. Bright neon pink colored flowers with 50 petals are the highlight of this tropical waterlily. The flower petals have a slight upward curve that creates an attractive cup shape.  Nymphaea ‘Hot Pink’ also has lively mottled pads that will attract the eye from quite a distance.  This tropical waterlily is a nice medium size compact plant that will fit any water garden or pond.

Foxfire Tropical Waterlily
Foxfire – 2014 IWGS First Place Tropical Waterlily, 2014 IWGS Best New Tropical Waterlily – Nymphaea ‘Foxfire’ is a truly a unique tropical waterlily. Its pink ring of narrow petals in the center with a medium blue backdrop of wider petals is such a beautiful contrast! Add the wonderful variegated leaves and you have a treasured gem. Presnell developed this fascinating flower in 2003, so its fairly new but quite popular. The long outer petals are medium blue and the short inner petals are a soft pink. The flower measures 8-9 inches and sits brilliantly among 19x17inch maroon with green mottled leaves. The plant spreads to a whopping 10 feet, which makes it perfect for any medium to large pond. This waterlily is one of the earliest to open.

N. Innocence flower 2nd day
Innocence – Nymphaea ‘Innocence’ is a stunning tropical waterlily.  It was given the name because of the pure white color of it’s flower.  Nymphaea ‘Innocence’ was hybridized in 2001 by Florida Aquatic Nurseries and released to the trade in 2004. The cross was made between an unnamed tropical waterlily hybrid and Nymphaea ‘Trail Blazer’.  Interestingly enough the waterlily came from the same seed pod as Nymphaea ‘Carla’s Sonshine’. This waterlily is unique for several reasons. Firstly, it is a strongly viviparous white lily with heavily mottled leaves. Most important is the uniquely large, pure white flower that stands high above the water on an extremely robust stalk. The pads are beautifully mottled with heavy maroon blotches on a green background.

N. Stan Skinger flower 1st day
Stan Skinger – Nymphaea ‘Stan Skinger’ was named after Stan Skinger of Denver, Colorado. Stan was a friend and volunteer at Denver Botanic Gardens. Nymphaea ‘Stan Skinger’ was a cross between the tropical waterlily Nymphaea ‘Golden West’ and the tropical waterlily Nymphaea ‘Trail Blazer’ and was released to the trade in 2006. Nymphaea ‘Stan Skinger’ is unique because of it’s flower color and it’s pads. The flower is yellow when the plant is young but at maturity the color turns to an orange, similar to golden west. The pads are heavily mottled with maroon streaks on a green background.

Thanks again, and we look forward to seeing and serving you soon!

Hurricane Irma Updated: September 15th, 2017

Hurricane Irma Update

First off, we need to say Thank You to all of our customers that have reached out to us since the hurricane passed through to make sure that we are okay. We sincerely hope that your own recovery from the storm has gone well, and that your fish were able to make it okay without electricity for a few days.

We were lucky to have had enough time for Orion and the crew get the shade cloth securely taken down so that it wouldn’t get destroyed in the wind. Some of our air lines were twisted around and lots of trees and debris got tossed around, but the fish all survived great. We had generators running to keep the waters cool, and got power back Thursday morning to help stabilize our systems.

With most of the cleanup progressing along, we are happy to announce that we will be re-opening this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, at 10am. We will not yet be back at our full capacity, and the shade cloth is still being reconfigured, but now is a great opportunity to come and experience the Fish Farm in a way that hasn’t been possible in over 10 years… in full sunlight! It may be a little warmer than you’re used to, but it’s definitely a wild site to see. The farm has been under shade cloth one way or another for over 10 years, so come out and see it and feel like you’re stepping back in time for a bit.

Of course, we still have all of your favorite fish for your aquariums and ponds, and any foods that you need to restock on, and any other accessories you may need. So, please come on out and let us know how you did with the storm, and we will continue to help serve you in any way we can.

See you soon!

May 26, 2017: Update – We’re Open Again

Fish Farm Family,

For those who heard about what happened at the Farm a few weeks ago, either on the news, or through our social media, we just want to thank you for your support and kind words while we were working to get back in business.
For those who didn’t hear, on Friday night, May 12th, there was a fire that spread and consumed our indoor showroom, our dry goods porch, our checkout area, and a large portion of our wooden deck.
Thankfully, the damage was localized to the front of the Farm with much thanks to the quick and strong efforts of the local fire department, and none of the concrete ponds in the rear of the farm were harmed. The fish back there had no idea anything happened besides the temporary loss of power until we could get generators back up and running the next morning thanks to some very generous friends, customers and neighbors.
We had to stay closed for a few days while the crew put together a new entrance since the old way is damaged beyond immediate repair, but they were able to get started helping a few surprised customers that were driving by over the weekend while the work continued.
We are happy to tell you that we are back open in a limited fashion, making due with what we can in a very simplified set-up, with a limited amount of dry goods, like your favorite Koi Sticks, Pondmaster Filters, and other necessary foods and supplies, and we were able to bring in some new aquatic plants this week as well.
We will be open from 12pm until 6pm every day for now until we get everything back up and running more seamlessly.
Thanks again for all the love and support through this occasion.
Hope to see you soon!
