Victoria Water Lily Pond 

The Victoria Water Lily Pond was constructed in 2012 and designed to house our collection of Victoria Water Lilies, which are native to the Amazon and grown and displayed in only a few locations in Colorado. The collection was first introduced to The Hudson Gardens in 1997.

The Victorias at Hudson Gardens produce massive leaves with diameters of 3 feet or more. In late July/early August, the Victoria plant blooms, producing night-blooming flowers that appear for only 48 hours. During each flower’s bloom cycle, the blossom changes overnight from female to male. Like all aquatic plants at The Hudson Gardens, the Victorias are maintained by a dedicated group of volunteers from the Colorado Water Garden Society.

The Victoria Water Lily Pond measures 25’ in diameter and is surrounded by a sunken brick paver plaza complete with sitting spots and lighting for night-time viewing. Water quality is maintained through biological filtration performed by the raised bog situated on the north side of the Pond.

On the northwestern side of the Victoria Water Lily Pond is also a newly-planted bed of evergreen trees which serve as a living privacy screen separating the Pond from the Rose Garden.
