The water lilles thrive best with little work on your part, while creating a serene and beautiful focal point for your setting.
There are only two main types of water lilies, the Tropical and the Hardy. They are related, but not cross breed-able.
The Hardy Water Lily is considered a perennial and can propagate without the help of a gardener. Once planted, they will thrive for years to come. These lilies range in size from only a few centimeters in diameter to over a foot wide. They come in a variety of colors as well. They begin to open in May until the first frost comes, and will open from forenoon until late afternoon.
Tropical Lilies are annual plants. These lilies are much larger than the Hardy’s, and will need more space. The Tropical’s last longer than the Hardy’s, blooming from midsummer to winter. These also come in a variety of colors.
You can find tropical’s in two varieties, those that bloom during the day and those that bloom at night. Day bloomers open from forenoon until late afternoon, while night bloomers will open from evening until morning.
