Royal Doublet

Pastel on Mi Tientes Board

This is a tropical waterlily that I had in my second pond. What I really liked about this one was the variegated pads. The striations were a sort of maroon purple color. This made the lily interesting even when not blooming. The pads were enormous as well. When the lily bloomed, they were a spiky purple petal with a center with alot of stamens that almost curved to the shape of the lily.

I think a little orange goldfish would be nice with these purple lilies. For now, they are just a royal purple pair.
