‘Director George T. Moore’ is a fragrant, day-blooming, medium-sized, free-flowering, tropical water lily that features violet-purple, open star-shaped flowers (to 7-10” diameter) with yellow centers. Flowers bloom continuously from summer into fall. Each flower appears on a stalk above the water surface, opening in the morning and closing at night, and blooms for about 3-4 days. Oval-rounded, green leaves (to 10" x 12”) have some purple blotching. Leaves float on the water surface. Leaf undersides are purple with well-defined green veins. Plants will spread to 5-8’ wide.
