Water Lilies Are On A Stalk Above The Water

Normally, the flowers and leaves of lilies lie on the water. But sometimes, the flowers and leaves on a stem protrude too high above the water’s surface, and the lily plant itself becomes too large, so it must be trimmed or “weighed down” so that they remain on the water’s surface. But keeping the leaves big in the summer is okay because they provide a protective “shade” for the pond’s fishes.

Some breeds of lilies, such as the Nymphaea or Rose Arey Water Lily, normally grow “tall”, so let them be.
