Water Lily Pads
Water Lily Pads: No water garden or pond is complete without a bit of vegetation to create a healthy ecosystem. TN Nursery explains to customers that water lily pads provide a three-fold purpose in your pond.
They are an aquatic perennial that will spread year over year. Lilypads need full sun, and each plant can span six feet across.
First, they provide a safe haven for frogs who help control the bugs around your water. Without the safety of a lily pad, fish would consume the frogs--and the mosquitoes would become uncontrollable. They also attract healthy insects--pollinators like dragonflies and bees.
Second, water lily pads protect fish from birds of prey who could quickly empty your pond of life. Fish instinctively hunt and hide in the shadows of the camouflage the plant provides.
Finally, these aquatic plants facilitate the vital addition of oxygen to the pond. Growing plants helps to add oxygen for any fish or wildlife that live in your pond.
Water Lily Pad Grows Under Water
You might wonder how the roots of this plant grow underwater. The lily pad breaks the water's surface from the long tubers attached to the root system. The lily pad collects the light needed for photosynthesis and plant growth and sends it back to the roots via those tubers.
The Graceful Appearance of the Water Lily Pad
The water lily pad is bright green and rounded, with pronounced attractive veins. The lilypad can grow approximately twelve inches wide.
The graceful and welcoming water lily flower forms from multiple erect petals with a long, narrow shape. The water lily flower comes in a range of beautiful hues:
- ● Bright pink
- ● Blush pink
- ● White
- ● Cream to light yellow
- ● Red
- ● Yellow
- ● Orange
- ● Purple
They are prolific growers and bloomers that don't require care from you after planting.
