      Lily Trade (Charlotte, NC)

      Hi there, I have 4 of these nice big Peach/Pink lillies, they're putting up a new flower about every 2 days at this point. You can see in this picture there is one open and two new buds pushing up out of the water, and a bunch more under the leaves growing. Nice and healthy. I have them in a pot about 15" round by about a foot deep. It is a sealed pot as well so no soil seeps out.

      I'm looking to trade for other water plants. I'd specifically be interested in other Lillies and Lotus.

      Thanks.

      I have a Wanvisa you are welcome to. The lily in your picture looks likely to be Strawn's Colorado'. Some confuse it with his 'Denver', but 'Denver' is a yellow lily ( http://www.victoria-adventure.org/wa...r_gallery.html ). Anyway, give a yell if you are interested in the Wanvisa.

      I am interested, but you're in FL so that's a heck of a drive for a lily.

      But thank you for the ID- that's super helpful as someone else did mention it likely being a Denver.

      Here's a few better pictures that really show the "true color".

      Lol....sorry I was not more clear. I have spare lilies and not looking for anything in return, just thought it would be a lily you would enjoy. It would be bare root, but I do have some experience in shipping waterlilies and can assure you it will arrive in good shape and recover quickly. Seriously, I am closing my ponds and am more than happy to send you the Wanvisa. I just need a ship to address. You can either google Craig Presnell or ask other members, but I am not trying to run a scam....just happy to share what I have in excess. < g >

      Craig has been a member on Koiphen since 2005. That is a awesome gesture for him to offer to send you a Wanvisa.

      That is very kind of you. I will name my new lily Craig!

      I'll PM you my address, but I insist on at least covering shipping costs. I can send you a paypal.

      Very kind. Thank you!

      I have been away for a year or so, trying to learn a new trade....I have one of Craig's Wanvisa's and it is one of the few lillies that has managed to stay alive and bloom for my not so greenthumb when it comes to pond plants. The Cuban frogs and their tadpoles have been the bane of my existience these past few years and makes it very hard to pond! I am soo sad to hear that you are closing your ponds Craig! Are you growing just gingers and tumeric now?
