Flowering Facts: Water Lily

water lilly pinkWater lilies come from both temperate and tropical areas of the world, they provide protection & shade for fish & a gentle resting spot for frogs & dragon flies.  Sometimes a water lily can bloom a beautiful flower that adds color to the water feature.  The water lily comes from the Nymphaeaceae plant family, which are commonly found in garden ponds and landscape water features. 

The plants structure consists of a large leaf or “pad” that floats on top of the water and is attatched to the soil at the bottom of the pond by a long stem.  Water lilies only live in fresh water that is shallow & still, around the edges of lakes or in small ponds with no current.

You can actually plant water lilies in pots and sink the pots into the pond, or plant the stem directly into the muddy soil at the bottom of the pond.
