Water Hawthorne loves cooler/cold water

The elongated leave is the leave of the Water Hawthorne. Water Hawthorne loves cool/cold water and will bloom all winter. The flowers have a slight vanilla fragrance. You can read more here about these amazing plants.

I took the above photo just a few days ago. Now is the time of year to plant the Water Hawthorne bulbs if your water is between 60 and 70 degrees.

I plant them in the same pot as hardy lilies. For a short period of time in the fall and spring both plants will bloom. The hardy lilies will soon be going dormant and the Water Hawthorne will continue to grow and bloom all winter long in the same lily pot. In the spring when the water warms up, the Water Hawthorne will go dormant - just about the time the lilies are starting to wake up for their winter's sleep.
