black lilly

I purchased what was called a black lilly, now i know you can't get black, its really a deep purple colour, but is there anything i could do to help it maintain its deep colour?



Tomato food helps to give the plant nutrients that the flowers need, including for colour, so you could give it a dose of that. Also, bright strong sunlight might fade the blooms. Do you know the botanical name?

These like a lot of moisture, and can be stood in a pond for the summer. Obviously, you should not feed it if it's going to stand in the pond as it would cause problems with algae.
