Water lily for sale is in the form of tuber planted in pots placed beneath the water. This plant is a good choice for beginning gardeners as water lilies are dependable and easy to plant. They usually blossom in the morning with star-shaped flowers and close after sunset, lasting 3 or 4 days before sinking beneath the surface. Blooming season lasts from spring to fall and water lilies go dormant in the winter.
Growing water lilies in a pond will help keep the water clean and aerated which lessens the pond’s maintenance. Here are the requirements you must know before buying and growing water lilies:
- Container – Select a container that is wide and shallow for your water lily since the tuber grows horizontally. The said container may or may not have holes. In case there are holes, you may line the pot with burlap to keep the soil in the container. Leaching soil can cloud the water in your pond.
