I have a packet of seeds that has no picture. The packet states: "Swamp Lily's-Water loving plants". Plant in full sun, where plenty of water is. Grows about 4' to 5', has about 6 to 8 flowers atop each stem. Sow 8" to 10" apart. Plant 1/2" deep, cover with lightly packed dirt. Water well, and keep moist. Will make a bush in couple of years."

Do you know what these are? I don't. Help!!

of the deciduous kinds is gradually diminished until the foliage withers. They are then stored under the benches during the winter. The evergreen kinds are watered throughout the year, but much less during the winter. When they begin active growth in the spring, they are top-dressed with fresh compost. C. americanum, as mentioned earlier, can be grown in the pond. It can be potted in a 5-gallon container and grown in 1 to 6 inches of water, in sun or partial shade. In cold climates, it should be moved to a greenhouse or other suitable shelter with adequate light and water before the first frost. When the temperatures have returned to a 70-degree temperature or higher, in late spring or early summer, it may be returned outdoors. Hope this helps clear the confusion!
