I purchased this hardy water lily from Texas Waterlilies (TW) in 2007. In the fall, I cut it back to the 'dirt' level and place in the deep end of my pond (four feet), although it would be fine in shallower water as long as the top doesn't get hit with ice. It returns each year and has been cut up into many more plants. TW seems to divide their plants into hardy and tropical, which seems important as my pond freezes to an ice depth of up to 12". The water temp at the bottom is about a steady 32-34 degrees, so topside temp doesn't matter.
