Product Overview

An attractive Native aquatic bog plant that will please every pond keeper. The Bog Lily, crinum americanum, goes by several common names such as Southern Swamp Lily or Swamp Lily. This perennial herb with an onion-like bulb has pleasingly fragrant white flowers each with 6 delicate long petals and burgundy pistils and stamens. There are 2 - 6 flowers at the tip of each flower stalk. Reliable blooms from June into October. 2 in. wide dark green leaves are erect to spreading and strap-like in appearance. A real treat for every pond.
  • Hardy in zones 7 - 11, this plant gets about 2 ft. tall and grows in small clumps
  • Mature plants can be up to 6 in. deep in your pond
  • Bog lilies will be fine in full sun to part shade
  • There is a great advantage to having a bog plant already potted in aquatic soil, the established root system will limit any shock to the plant going in your pond and reduce the chance for plant failure
  • Depending on the time of the year and the size of the plant, it may be necessary to cut the plant back, this will not harm the plant as it will recover rapidly from being trimmed

Answer

Hi Treniets! There are many variables that affect the blooming capacity for plants. The bog lily should begin blooming some time in June/July. If conditions allow, it can re-bloom throughout the summer into fall. The biggest variables are sunlight and temperatures. A good, healthy pond that has an adequate nutrition cycle will increase its blooms, too. I would not expect blooms for that entire 5 month period as Mother Nature rarely blesses us with "perfect" conditions for that long.

Hi Justwondering! My thought is that with that low of a level of salt, the Bog Lily should do just fine. There are good number of folks who keep a low level of salt in their pond for their fish. There may be some initial signs of browning on the tips of the leaves, but the long term effects should be minimal. If you see alot of leaves browning/dying you may want to consider removing the plant and placing it in a fresh water tub for a week or two to revive it. It is hard to say exactly how this plant will react to this environment.

is this variety of bob lilly (givhandys) salt tolerant?

Answer

Hi Bill!This variety of bog lily is strictly a fresh water plant. It would not be advisable to introduce this plant to a salt water bog/marsh area. Keep it in a fresh water environment and you will be happy and so will your bog lily!

Pond Lily decent, but two of the other plants ordered died within a week, so only 3 out of 5 survived. I had expected better. They are all in similar and appropriate levels of sunlight and water.

The plant came with 1 yellow leaf, the rest drooping. I figured it was just stressed. After a week, a 2nd leaf turned yellow, I thought it was going to die. But after a few days, the others perked up. Once the 2 yellow leaves died back completely, I cut them off and now the plant seems to be doing fine.
