Additional Information

  • What do water lilies need to survive?

    To grow healthily, the lily water flower needs a still and calm environment that won’t be disturbed by flowing water, fountains, or pumps. You don't need a huge pond for them to float on and flourish – small, decorative ponds can also hold these beauties. They are easy to care for and great for beginners, lasting around three or four days before sinking beneath the water. The flowers that have died should be removed.

    Lilies like the sun but not direct sunlight – keep yours in partial shade.

  • Do water lilies come back every year?

    In the right conditions, water lilies bloom all year round. However, in cooler areas, they grow from summer into autumn.
  • Can you plant water lilies without soil?

    Yes, you can. Place the roots onto the pond's beat and cover them with small stones to keep them secure. If your pond is deep, place the roots into a heavy container and fill it, covering the roots, with gravel and lower the container into the pond.
  • Will water lilies take over a pond?

    In the right conditions, they can grow quickly and take over your pond. While these pond plants can help block some light from the water and control algae growth, covering too much can prevent oxygenation and suffocate other plants and fish in your water. Kill overgrown root systems with herbicide by applying them to leaves above the water.
