Three weeks ago our friends Ken Landon and Tim Davis put on the 7th annual Lilyfest celebration with over 240 waterlilies in Civic League Park in San Angelo. This year three new waterlilies were dedicated and the 1980s favorite Texas Dawn made by Ken Landon was honored as recently becoming the state waterlily of Texas. Representative Drew Darby attended again this year and brought the proclamation to the Park.
Texas Dawn has been an incredible waterlily for nearly 30 years, the wonderful yellow flowers on this hardy lily are held high above the water and blooms in profusion. Hybridizers also enjoy working with the cultivar by Ken Landon. Here are some videos from Ken Landon, Drew Darby, and Tim Davis.
Texas Dawn waterlilies are available for purchase here.
