Phonetic Spelling

Description

Water lilies are a group of plants containing about 70 known species. They are either tropical or hardy and grow in water 3 inches to 3 feet deep. The spread is variable from 2 feet to about 20 feet. Larger plants need larger water gardens or ponds. Short ones do well growing in containers. They prefer non-moving water without fountains or currents. Most prefer full sun but some will tolerate some shade. The flowers are showy and usually fragrant with showy lily pads for leaves. Viviparous water lilies form plantlets attached to the mother plant.

Yellow Dazzler is a  tropical water lily with vibrant, large, lemon-yellow flowers that are held high above the even larger deep green lily pads. The flowers are very fragrant and frequently remain open until dusk. Use in medium to large water gardens.
