Well today was the day I said farewell to the tub for the winter. Oh my word there were so many roots down in there. My iris roots were probably about as long as the plant was tall!
I'm going to try an experiment. Both the dwarf (HA not anymore) water lettuce and the lily are going in the pond. I have no worries whether or not the lily will survive as it's a hardy temperate variety, but I am worried about it getting enough sun. Hopefully this year will have given the plant a nice head start and it'll be able to power through. Plus, the pond gets a ton of sun in the spring. I am curious to see if the water lettuce will survive through the winter. If not, I'll just grow out some more in my tub next year and put it in the pond.
And now for pictures.
This is where they are located to give you an indication of the size of the plants.
These are the water lettuce plants. They started out as dwarf...
Just a neat picture of the last good leaf on my lily. It'll be gone soon. The pond is dropping to just above 60F.
