Nymphaea - Pond Lily

Pond Lily brings wildlife to your pond
Most pond lilies will have a bloom either white or yellow. Pond lilies are known as the jewels of the pond. They are beautiful and also serve an excellent purpose of aiding the ecosystem. The shade of lilies can help shade and keep the temperature down during the hot summer months. When the sunlight is kept away, the algae will not grow. Hardy lilies can remain in the water all year. However, some of the lilies will die off in the colder months and then will give way to new leaves and blooms in the spring.

Water lilies range in size from miniature flowers to large plants. The color of the bloom can vary from yellow all the way to blue. They usually can be very fragrant and come in a lot of different shapes. The lily will flower in May through September. The blooms will open in the early morning and close at night. The pond lily is known for attracting frogs and dragonflies. Frogs love jumping from pad to pad.

Pond Lily holds color and elegance
One of the most different in the pond lily family is the tropical water lilies. They are larger ones in the family and capture the most attention. They do require warmer climates, and they are a little more challenging to grow. Once they are successful one will be thankful you took the time. Pond lilies can have an array of colorful blooms from pink, red, orange and yellow. The roots grow under the water they are long and dense. Aquatic life lay their eggs in the roots.
