Giant Amazon Lily at its peak in September and early October

Now is probably the best time of year to catch The Living Rainforest’s famous Giant Amazon Lily on our main pond.

The tropical Lily needs high water temperatures and light levels to grow large leaves, and by around November each year it dies off.

We replant from new seed in the Spring and then, depending on light and heat levels, the large leaves tend to appear by mid to late Summer. This year, because of the generally overcast weather, the Lily took longer than usual to develop to full size.

Later this week, our Facebook fan page will feature a new photo album on the Giant Amazon Lily, along with additions to our album of pics showing many stunning additions to our Orchid collection.
