I was wanting to have a water lily.--aren't they just beautiful???? As I cannot put in a pond,or any type of larger water garden, has any one ever say gotten a very large flower pot or wood half barrel and grown some that way??? If any of you have, is there anything special I have to do so the lily will thrive??

I have 2 half barrel water gardens. One has 1 water lily and the other has 2. I have mine in pots with heavy soil so the soil doesn't float away. You may want to add some heavy rocks to help it stay on the bottom. Mine do very well in the barrels and have come back for the last 4 years now.
