Pots for Water Lilies and Lotus
Most water lilies and water lotus prefer sealed tubs, especially when planted in pure clay. These lily tubs are ideal because they are shallow and have a lip making retrieval ideal.

- Large PT977: 19.5″ in diameter and 9.5″ tall; capacity 9 gallons
A wide variety of water lilies and lotus require planting in sealed containers. Lily Tubs are especially designed for water lilies, lotus and other bog plants. They don’t have any holes, ensuring that the soil needed for these plants will not leak out of the tubs and into the pond. Lilies and other bog plants grow horizontally across the container, so they should be given plenty of room to grow into when first planted. To minimize soil erosion and leakage, small pebbles can be placed over the top of the soil in the planted tub. Fully planted lily tubs should be carefully placed on the pond floor, never drag planted tubs across the floor of the pond.
