Hi, I'm Shane with Glover Nursery here in West Jordan, Utah. Today, I'm going to talk to you about winterizing a hardy water lily and storing that for the Winter. So to winterize your water lily, it's quite easy. What you're going to want to do is you're going to leave it in the container for the Winter and as these leaves start turning yellow and dying back, you're just going to pinch them back and the closer you get to the pot, the less organic matter you're going to leave in the pond. You want to get as much out as possible so it doesn't decompose in your pond. You'll just pinch all the yellow dying leaves off and then you'll place it back in the pond. Normally you're not going to have this wire basket but the ideal depth that you're going to want to keep this at is around in this climate, a zone 6, a 5, 6, two feet should be sufficient. You're just going to want to make sure that the crown of the plant right here is below the ice line for the Winter. As long as that's below the ice line for the Winter, you should be okay. Again, I'm Shane with Glover Nursery here in West Jordan, Utah and we have just talked about storing a water lily for Winter.
