Water lilies are a well studied clade of plants because their large flowers with multiple unspecialized parts were initially considered to represent the floral pattern of the earliest flowering plants, and later genetic studies confirmed their evolutionary position as basal angiosperms. Analyses of floral morphology and molecular characteristics and comparisons with a sister taxon, the family Cabombaceae, indicate, however, that the flowers of extant water lilies with the most floral parts are more derived than the genera with fewer floral parts.

I just bought this latest edition of Waterlilies and Lotuses after owning the last one for a few years and I was glad to see photos and information on many new varieties.

Some of the new listings, with photos, include Foxfire, King of Siam, Carla's Sonshine, Islamorada, Innocence, Miami Rose and many others.

A lot of great species lilies are also listed, with photos, such as the Victoria lilies, the Australian Gigantea lilies, Eurayle Ferox and others.

All descriptions of the lilies include information such as flower size, shape and fragrance and leaf sizes colors and spread. Also included on most lilies is the date of introduction, the person who hybridized them and the parent plants of the hybrids when known.

The authors also give recommendations as to what size pond or tub is best suited for a particular lily.

I like this book and think it can be helpful for persons deciding which plants to purchase for their pond.

Perry Slocum is the dean of waterlilies. He provides descriptions of species and hybrids.

Cultivation and care is also covered in the book. There are color photos of many of the plants discussed.

Probably the best guide on waterlilies.

An excellent book for a person that owns a water garden. He is an excellent writer with a great background in water plants.

This is an excellent reference for water gardeners interested in cultivating water lilies and lotus plants. It is well written, highly informative and illustrated with many excellent photos. The condition of the book was excellent, as advertised, and the seller packed the book well and shipped it quickly - highly recommend.

I was disappointed with this book as it did not include most of the hardy waterliles I've recently purchased (eg. Chromatella, Helvola). Perhaps I need to purchase the first Slocum book for this information?? They may be included under a different name, but if so, this does make this reference less useful as the common trade names are the key words most of us will be using to find information.

the ultimate guide to waterlily knowledge!!
Grarana
An excellent addition to the authors prior works, well illustrated and full of interesting tidbits on the subject by what is probably the most experienced water gardener of recent times
A incredible book and a must for anyone who wants to learn everything out there on water lilies.
