Longwood’s Waterlily Display attracts thousands of summer visitors who admire the tranquility and beauty of the unusual plants. Learn how to grow these lovely specimens at home. Engage in discussions, demonstrations, and hands-on activities as you divide and repot surplus plants from Longwood’s collection to take home for your water garden. Conclude with a walk around the Waterlily Display and discuss favorable conditions for growing these remarkable specimens.

Students receive water-loving plants, special medium, and a container to create your own miniature water garden. Please be prepared to transport a large container, dress for a hands-on experience, and bring gardening gloves if you care to use them.
