Getting Hardy Water Lilies ready for Winter

Late in the season the hardy water lily will prepare for winter by developing a winter tuber in the soil. The flowers will stop being produced and the water lily pads will cease to grow. The main concern is to protect the developed hardy tuber in the soil from freezing. This can be done by placing the planting container with the hardy water lily at the bottom of the water garden pool. If the water garden pool is shallow or may freeze solid, the planting container with the tuber must be removed to a cold dark cellar. The water lily tuber in the planting container must be kept damp all winter.
