I started this project back in autumn time but work came to a halt due to an injury I suffered at work. However, work recommenced in earnest in Springtime as…
They produce frost-hardy waterlilies they grow in most climates and will flower freely throughout the summer. You can divide the tuber-like rhizomes and then replant in spring or summer every 3 or 4 years. The tropical waterlilies are frost tender, and will require a very warm, sunny situation. If you grow them in cooler areas, the tubers of tropical waterlilies should be lifted and stored in moist sand over the winter.
You can propagate from seeds or by separating the plantlets in spring or early autumn.
