You must also be a Participating Member of Truly Named WGI
here to become a Participating Member.
Certifying Members pledge that specific waterlily cultivars
are labeled are true to name. This can be for some or all of
the named varieties you offer. You must submit a list of cultivars
that you certify together with a picture of each. (These can
be watermarked or copyrighted across the face, as long as the
lily is recognizable, if piracy is a concern.) If no image is
available, detailed provenance can be accepted. These lists and
images/or provenance are linked from the Truly
WGI © Directory. It is not
required that all varieties offered be certified.
If you do not grow your own plants, in order to certify specific
varieties, please provide provenance and either your images of
the plants you receive or images provided by the actual growers.
If the grower is already in the program, we can link to their
images without you resending them. To see Certifying Members

images and/or provenance and/or review by acknowledged experts.
To check your cultivars against the galleries (strongly suggested)
Cultivars meeting the requirements above are entitled to have
