Nymphaea Lillies at Home Depot


Just FYI, at least at the Home Depot's in San Diego. Nymphaea species Lilly's for ponds. They are $9.99 ready to plant. Looks like they are just the bulb in planting material. I was thinking of maybe trying one in my aquarium. I have the ones from Walmart and they grow well. The Home Depot ones actually have names. One was "Sioux" and there were several others.

They will grow very large. The ones sold for aquarium are dwarf meaning they are sort of small to use in an outdoor pond.

My dwarf lily can cover about 4 square feet with the greatest of ease inside. I think this might be the species I have.

Sioux is sold by Foster and Smith. If you can move it outside might be fun.
