Home > Hardy Water Lilies >


Perennial lilies spring back to life every year. They bloom during the day while the sun is out. Blooms will last 3 days, sometime longer. If the lily has variegated pads it will have more shade tolerance. The lily will continuously grow new foliage during the warmer months. When water temperature drops below 40f, the lily is preparing to go dormant. Removing lilypads will help reduce the build up of organic sludge.

When planting hardy water lilies (Nymphaea), first locate the crown of the plant. This is the part where the pads emerge from the rhizome, or the base of the lily. You will then need to distinguish which direction the roots are growing off of the zhizome and place them down in the soil (clay-based is prefered). Since most lilies tend to grow horizonally, place the zhizome flat and cover it in dirt with the crown exposed. Note that the lily can also be placed diagonally into the soil.
