I recently bought some water lilies, but I have no idea how to take care of them. Would you please give me some suggestions? I live in zone 5; how should I winterize them?

Hardy water lilies can be left in their containers in the pond over the winter. Tropical lilies must be brought indoors, with the tubers packed in damp sand in a cool but not cold location. Storing the tropicals is an iffy process that does not always work, so be prepared to replace them each year.
