Gifted hybridizer Dieter Bechthold of Wuppertal, Germany, introduces Nymphaea 'Pattern Ruby'. "It is my best hardy waterlily cultivar. I think it is the first waterlily with a pattern in the blossom and leaves." Shimmering ruby red petals are broadly streaked with white and the maroon pads are splashed with dark green.

N. 'Pattern Ruby' joins a stunning array of other Bechthold cultivars. Dieter has also collaborated with Gartenteich Editor-in-chief Harro Hieronimus to create a new book just released, Seerosen Blütenzauber im Gartenteich. Click here for more information.
