What To Expect With Mail Order

Plants you receive by mail need time to adjust. Your water lily will arrive Bare Root (only root and little to no foliage). Upon arrival, they may not appear lush but given time & proper care, they will flourish!

Planting Instructions

Use Plant Bags or Plant Baskets to plant your water lilies. Plant each tuber with the growing tip facing outward. Fill in around the tuber with aquatic planting media, making sure the roots are spread well and the crown is sitting just below the soil surface. Place in shallow area of pond to encourage faster growth. Once new leaves have reached the surface, water lily can be moved deeper into the pond.


Water lilies should be fertilized throughout the growing season. CrystalClear® Thrive™ Aquatic Plant Fertilizer or TetraPond® LilyGro™ Aquatic Plant Food or Laguna Plant Grow Fertilizer Spikes can be pushed into the soil at planting time and from April through August, following all manufacturers' recommendation for fertilizer application rates.

Plant Maintenance

For best results, trim or prune water lily as leaves and flowers begin to turn yellow or brown, remove them completely, discarding them to keep as much excess organic material out of water-body as possible.

Winter Care

The Leopardess Water Lily is a tropical plant. In zones under 10, the water lily should be discarded or brought inside to overwinter.
