How to Grow Water Lily
The hardy and humble Water Lily, which can grow out of slimy dams or muddy pots in ponds to produce glossy green floating leaves and heavenly flowers, that both rest peacefully on top of or above the water, are a wonderful addition to any aquatic garden. Actually a ‘water herb’, the Water Lily will spread via a creeping rhizome to all areas of a dam or pond where the water is the right depth. Too shallow and it won’t do well, too deep and it will not grow. Different varieties are suitable to different climates.
