Hardy Water Lilies
All plants will be shipped "Zone-Appropriate" in Spring 2019.
Plant orders are shipped "Zone Appropriate" in order to ensure that your climate is right for plant survival. Our growers monitor weather conditions and ship accordingly.
The Grower determines which Zones are warm enough to accept plants for the coming week on Sunday and then ships the plants going to those Zones on Monday-Wednesdays. We want to insure that no plants end up sitting in a FedEx or USPS warehouse over the weekend.
Hardy water lilies produce round, leathery leaves up to 1 foot across. They can be green or splashed with brown. Their multi-petaled flowers measure up to 12 inches across and come in white, pink, yellow, and red.
Many have flowers that change color as they age, and most are lightly scented. The flowers open in the morning and close at night.
Unlike tropical water lilies, the flowers of hardy water lilies float on the surface of the water, and the plants grow from rhizomes, not tubers.
