The Sioux Lily is considered a hardy water lily, which means that it can withstand the cooler temperatures of the lower zones. Sioux is an excellent bloomer, and the flowers stay open very late into the day. Best of all, its flowers form star-shaped blooms that change from chrome yellow, then to a deep orange, and finally to a copper red. The plant can spread 6-12 feet, the blooms measure 5-6 inches, and the leaves are 8-9 inches. The more sun it gets, the more blooms.
