The botanical name of the family that the water lily belongs to is called Nymphaeaceae. The starting of the word is ‘nymph’ which genuinely captures the enchanting image of a fairy-like creature, which is there for one second and gone the next. This is just like the water lily flower which opens and closes with the sun. For the water lily to bloom it needs at least 6 hours of sun each day, they thrive in gardens that have very little shade to cover the sun.
These plants flourish in areas with a lot of water, as they need to be submerged under the water so their leaves can reach the surface on floating stems. It is entirely possible to grow well-flourished water lilies in relatively small containers, and you don't necessarily need a pond for this as long as the container is deep enough.
