Zones 4 - 11. This aquatic perennial's tuberous roots colonize the soil at the bottom of earth-bottom ponds, or the soil in containers fully submerged in lined ponds. The stems of the leaves can reach the surface of water that's nearly two feet deep-and then continue upward, above the water, a few inches or even a foot farther. The roots don't tolerate frost but the tubers and roots are hardy anywhere the water above the soil is deep enough that the pond's surface-ice doesn't freeze all the way down to the soil, and yet is not so deep that their leaves can't reach at least a bit above the water's surface to get the full sun they need to grow and flower: From the frost-free tropics of Zone 11, then, all the way down to the seriously-Wintered Zone 4 of Northern Vermont and Canada. Few plants, aquatic or terrestrial, have such a world-wide versatility.
Easily sprouted by scoring the short end of the seed and leaving in a bowl of water. Nymphaea, or the "true" water lily, has its place in myth and legend, beginning with the ancient Greeks who dedicated the plant to the nymph, a type of water demigoddess.

Few plants, aquatic or terrestrial, have such a world-wide versatility. Growing your lotus in a plastic tub that's submerged in water: Plant the tuber shallowly, on its side, in a dishpan-sized plastic tub of heavy soil. Don't use potting soil, which is so fluffy it would just float away when you submerge the plastic tub. Leave the tuber's growth tip exposed.After two or three of the small starter leaves have sprouted, you can lower the tub (carefully) to its "mature" depth.
Yes, the starter leaves will be "drowned"-fully submerged-but the subsequent leaves will know to grow all the way up to the surface. Only after the young plant has a half dozen leaves lolling around on the surface, just like those of water lilies, does it then decide to grow leaves that leap up out of the water entirely before unfurling.

Red Flare. This excellent night blooming water lily was developed by the famous hybridizer Martin Randig of California in 1938. The blossoms are a deep red with foliage of a mahogany shade that stands out among the finest night bloomers. The foliage is typical of the class of night bloomers in growing very thick leaves with undulating margins. Late in the afternoon, while the typical day blooming water lilies are closing, Red Flare shows a wonderful deep coloration as dusk approaches. In moonlight, it gives off a glowing red coloration during the late night hours. In the early morning it continues to show its magnificent flowers! A must in every water garden pool

Tropical Water Lilies are spectacular pond plants that can be grown outside in your water garden in all zones as long as the weather is warm enough. Tropical water lilies like the temperature to be at least 70 degrees. If you live in areas that freeze, you can winter your tropical water lilies inside and bring them out again in the spring. Tropical water lilies are very free flowering and for the most part, very fragrant. Tropical water lilies come in shades of white, yellow, pink, red, blue and purple. Tropical water lilies come in both day blooming and night blooming varieties. Depth should be maintained between 6" to 18" when first transplanted and then once established can be grown from 12" to 30" deep depending on the variety.

Bagdad. The flowers are wisteria blue, broad and flat, gold centered with yellow stamens and petioles just long enough to hold them above the floating leaves. Leaves are of medium size, light green above and with blotches of red and brown, and dark green with beneath with purple stripes. George Pring, in 1941, described this wonderful lily as "The combination of leaf and flower gives a rich effect, something like that of a Persian rug". It is a good propagator. Without a doubt this water lily stands out among the blue flowered water lilies. Many hybridizers have always claimed Bagdad as one of the best achievements of George Pring.
